Cricket Scotland confirmed that the scheduled 4 day Intercontinental Cup match against Canada in July is to be played at the Bothwell Castle Policies ground in Uddingston starting on Thursday July 4.
Aberdeenshire groundsman Ken McCurdie offered his best wishes to the Uddingston groundsman [and former Scotland paceman], Paul Hoffmann, who has already gained praise for the surfaces he provided for the Saltires' CB40 matches with the Welsh Dragons and Hampshire this month.
Hoffmann commented, "This is a terrific boost for the club. We enjoyed hosting the CB40 games and look forward to hosting the Saltires in our first ever first class game at the club. The locals have really got into the spirit of the club of late and will be excited by the prospect of more international cricket in the village."
