We'll meet again?

We now know where and when. The BBC reports that Scotland will warm up for this year's Twenty20 with a knock-about against England at Trent Bridge, on 2 June.

One thing is for certain - expect rain. Lot's of it.

In recent years it seems that all of Scotland's high profile, BIG international fixtures in the UK have involved oodles of rain. Well, it was actually sleet when Pakistan came to play in Glasgow. We didn't get more than a damp few overs against England in last year's historic "full" ODI. And I remember a glorious day in the rain, watching Australia's finest "press the flesh" around the boundary at the Grange, here in Edinburgh.

My money is on 8 overs of play. Max. You read it here first.

  1. I was lucky enough to see Scotland play NZ at the Grange during the 1999 World Cup (lucky in the sense that it was mostly sunny and didn't rain the whole day). Not bad for the end of May.
