Ireland in Scotland ODI Series - 1st ODI

Scotland v Ireland

Ireland won by 96 runs

10.30am - Good morning and welcome to Aberdeen for the first ODI between Scotland and Ireland for ball-by-ball action with me Callum Stewart. The captains have just tossed and Scotland won and put the Irish in to bat. The groundsman have done a great job yesterday of getting to ground fit for play after very heavy showers on Thursday.

Here come Wilson and Porterfield for the Irish in green followed by the Scots in their new navy blue ODI kit.

Very sunny here in Mannofield and entrance is free. It's also a Saturday so if you're stuck at work unlucky but if you're in the area there's no excuse not to pop down to the ground and watch some cricket. Nel's back from injury to open for the Scots
