New Zealand vs Scotland: Only One-Day Match in Edinburgh
|306/10 (49.4 ov) – R/R 6.16||286/3 (43.4 ov) – R/R 6.55|
Due to the damp outfield, the toss has been postponed. According to a recent update from Cricket Scotland, the game will begin at 11:15 instead of the initially scheduled hour.
Following clean sweeps of Ireland in the T20Is and ODIs and a 2–0 thrashing of Scotland in the T20Is, the New Zealand juggernaut has proved unbeatable throughout its tour of Europe. In the lone ODI versus Scotland at the Grange Cricket Club in Edinburgh, they are the favorites to win.
In both T20Is, the Blackcaps batted first and amassed enormous totals of 225 and 254, respectively. When summoned to bat, the hosts had no replies and lost both games by significant margins. If the visitors choose to bat first on this surface, the story might play out similarly.
To stop New Zealand, the Scottish bowlers must bowl at the limit. To post a defendable total in a more extended version of the game, the batters must also bat out 50 overs and demonstrate some intent.
