This match was scheduled to be played at Harrogate CC on the 5th September 2017. During the night of the 4th/5th and all day on the 5th it rained, the square and the outfield flooded and the umpire cancelled play. At this stage no players from Scotland had travelled to Harrogate however a few from Surrey/West Sussex had.
The race was then on to find an alternative venue and match date but this proved impossible. The tournament organiser had no option but to organise the toss of a coin – a regrettable thing to have to do in any cricket event but time, the weather and venue options were against us – and the coin came down in Scotland’s favour.
