It's the first time Sri Lanka have played an official game on Scottish soil, and the Scottish will be on an all-time high after chasing down 320 against Ireland in spectacular fashion yesterday. We will be bringing you every ball live from the ground today. Your commentator as always, Callum Stewart.

10.00am - I am pleased to report that the sun is shining here in the Scottish capital and it's set to be another glorious summers day. Both teams are out warming up and the fans are already appearing. Many Scots will be hooked on cricket after watching yesterdays Celtic showdown, and the Sri Lanka fans will be just happy to watch their team play some cricket. I've heard tickets are limited, so if your coming down to the ground today, pack the picnic now and head down to the Grange. Team and toss news shortly.

Scotland won the toss and will bowl.
