Glasgow, June 17 | Scotland’s one-off T20I against Australia, which was scheduled to be held in Edinburgh on July 29, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The match was scheduled to be part of Australia’s tour of the United Kingdom with a limited-overs series against England to follow.
“Due to the ongoing restrictions in place for international sport due to COVID-19, Cricket Scotland, together with the ECB and Cricket Australia, has agreed to cancel the men’s T20I against Australia due to be played at The Grange on 29th June,” the cricket board said in a statement.
“Whilst the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) and Cricket Australia are in joint discussions regarding the rescheduling of Australia’s tour, it has been agreed that a fixture against Scotland will not be possible should the tour take place later in the summer due to the costs and logistics involved in staging a one-off fixture in a secure environment.”
Cricket Scotland CEO Gus Mackay said: “Whilst this is disappointing news for us all in Scotland, we have explored all potential options and concluded that it is no longer possible to play the men’s T20 international against Australia.”
