Scotland T20 cricket match against Australia called off

Scotland were due to play Australia in Edinburgh on June 29.

Scotland’s T20 international match against Australia has been called off.

The Scots were due to welcome their opponents to Grange Park in Edinburgh on June 29.

But the match has now been cancelled, with the teams agreeing the costs of staging a one-off fixture in a secure environment during lockdown would be too high.

Cricket Scotland have said fans who had bought tickets for the fixture will be refunded.

Gus Mackay, the governing body’s chief executive, added: “Whilst this is disappointing news for us all, we have explored all potential options and concluded that it is no longer possible to play.”
