Ireland to face Scotland

Ireland and Scotland are to play three one-day internationals in the autumn.

The sides will meet at Malahide on September 8, 10 and 12 in preparation for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

"This series will serve as ideal preparation for both teams ahead of the World Cup," said Cricket Ireland chief executive Warren Deutrom.

Scotland have enjoyed a return to form over recent months under the stewardship of Craig Wright and Paul Collingwood, qualifying after missing out in 2011.
