New Zealand will play two T20’s and one ODI against Scotland this July, following their visit to Ireland.

The matches, to be hosted at the Grange in Edinburgh, will be played on 27th, 29th and 31st July.

Scotland will be looking to remedy a poor record against the Black Caps, having never managed to beat them in 17 previous meetings.

“We are excited to welcome the Black Caps to our shores this summer. We want to keep challenging ourselves versus ICC Full Members and New Zealand are up there as one of the best," said Scotland Head Coach Shane Burger.

“Having reached both of the most recent T20 and 50 over ICC world cup finals, they have proven to be the most consistent team across all formats of the game in recent years.

“We have 12 international ODI’s to be played prior to the New Zealand series and so the squad are training well and looking forward to a busy 2022.”

New Zealand head coach Gary Stead said “It’s going to be a great occasion for the Black Caps to visit Scotland,”

“Over the past decade we’ve seen Scotland improve as a cricketing nation and develop into a force in international cricket.

“Having played there personally myself at Brechin Cricket Club, I know how passionate the people are about the game and I have no doubt they will be eagerly looking forward to this tour.

“Playing against associate teams as a major nation is a really important part of helping them grow and that growth can only benefit the world game long term.”
