Dirk Nannes to open up

Warm welcome to all of you for the coverage of the warm-up game between Netherlands and Scotland at The Oval.

Apparently it's not so warm in London. After several days of bright sunshine, we've got a cloudy day. The temperature has dropped but several Indian and Pakistan fans are already making their way to the Oval even though the ICC's 'Catch the Spirit' match begins only at half five.

Netherlands have won the toss and they will bowl first. We will give you the teams shortly.
