Zimabwe will today play Scotland in their first ODI against each other. Scotland is not a full member but however they have ODI status and are an Associate member of the ICC and will surely give Zimbabwe a good run for their money. Scotland last had an opportunity to play a Full Member in an ODI in March 14, 2015 when they played against Australia. Scotland go into this game with confidence after their seven wicket trouncing of Sri Lanka in an unofficial one-dayer less than a month ago in Kent. Zimbawe played Associate members Namibia and Canada in their last two series and winning all of them by white wash which is no surprise since they are a full member hence superior. After this date with Scotland Zim will then play Netherlands in three ODIs before they can play a fellolow full member  Sri Lanka in July.
