Fixtures for the Dutch and Scottish components of the North Sea Pro-Series have been announced, but the cross-national fixtures are again absent.
The Hurricanes and Seafarers will be in action in May, playing three one day matches scheduled for the 17th, 30th and 31st. Though no T20 fixtures are planned on the Dutch side, the much-lauded three-day challenge will return - scheduled for the 1st week of September.
The Scottish regional competition, expanded to three sides last season, will again feature full 50-over and T20 competitions, with home and away fixtures between each side.
There is as yet no word on the scheduling of a cross-national finals series as was held last season, though it expected to be held toward the end of the summer.
he Hurricanes and Seafarers will also be in action early the following month, providing opposition for Germany and Norway respectively as the two countries prepare for ICC Europe Division 1.
