“We are really excited to be playing these ODI’s versus another Full Member. After the success of 2018, the team is mindful that we face new pressures and higher expectations from both Scottish cricket fans and also the wider global cricket community,” said Kyle Coetzer, the Scotland skipper.

The two teams have locked horns twice in ODI cricket, with Sri Lanka claiming the victory on both the occasions.
