The Netherlands are set to host Scotland in a two-match ODI series starting at the Hazelaarweg Stadion in Rotterdam on May 19.
The Netherlands last played an ODI against Zimbabwe back in June 2019. They defeated Zimbabwe in both games by seven and three wickets respectively.
The Dutch side also faced Nepal and Malaysia in a T20I Tri-Series in April. Facing Nepal in the final of the series, the Netherlands conceded 238 runs, bowling first. In response, the Netherlands were bowled out for partly 96. Karan KC led the bowling attack with three wickets to his name while Kamal Singh and Sandeep Lamichhane scalped two wickets each.
Scotland haven't played any international series since December 2019. They have lacked quality training over the last year or so due to the pandemic. This will be their first international series after 17 months.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this series will be played in a bio-secure bubble, and no spectators will be allowed in the stadium.
