SL vs SCO: After the first ODI between the two nations got abandoned due to bad weather, both the sides will meet again on Tuesday at Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh for the second ODI. Having an eye on the mega event – CWC 2019, Sri Lanka will be looking for positive results when they take on the hosts in the afternoon.
