ICC World Cricket League Championship, 2011-2013/14 - 28th match

Scotland v Canada

Scotland won by 4 wickets (with 47 balls remaining)

11.27am - Here come the umpires, the Scots in blue and the Canadian batsmen Patel and Gunasekera in red. The sun is shining, and we're going to get some cricket.

Both batsmen are young, 20 years old and prolific ball strikers at T20.

Ally Evans to open the bowling.

11.10am - The groundsmen are putting the final touches to the pitch, it's not going to be a road and may take some spin in this game, and credit to the whole team at Ayr for getting the only ODI ground in Scotland playable today. The weather has been the big winner in Scottish cricket this summer so far, but both teams will be looking for a win today to boost their chances of going to the Cricket World Cup.

11.05am - Scotland have won the toss and will field. We will be starting at 11.30am with a full 50 overs game.

Canada - H Patel, R Gunasekera, NR Kumar, Junaid Siddiqui, D Daesrath, Usman Limbada, AS Hansra*, Zeeshan Siddiqi, D Soraine, JOA Gordon, DR Ramsammy†, MS Aulakh

Scotland - GD Drummond*, RD Berrington, KJ Coetzer, JH Davey, AC Evans, CD Wallace†, G Goudie, RM Haq, CS MacLeod, PL Mommsen, JH Stander, DF Watts

10.50am - Good morning everyone, and welcome to our coverage of this ODI Cricket World Cup Qualifier between Ayr and Scotland. After the 4-day match was washed out last week, and the first ODI cancelled, we are finally ready for some cricket.

The grounds staff here at Ayr have been working hard all week to get the ground fit for play after such heavy rain last weekend, which saw four weeks worth of rainfall and the matches had to be moved from the Grange in Edinburgh.

We will be bringing you news of the toss and the teams shortly.
