Cricket Scotland has announced on Tuesday (4 June) their 15-man squad for one-off Specsavers One Day International against England starting on June 10 (Sunday) at the Grange in Edinburgh.
Kyle Coetzer will lead the side while Richie Berrington will be on his deputy against England. On the other hand, Scotland squad added in-form Dylan Budge and experienced former captain Preston Mommsen, while Brad Wheal, Safyaan Sharif, Alasdair Evans and Stuart Whittingham will lead the bowling attack against England.
Meanwhile, all-rounder Tom Sole will miss the England ODI after suffering a broken ankle playing for Sussex in the One Day cup recently.
As per reports in the official website of Cricket Scotland, Head Coach Grant Bradburn said, “This has been our toughest squad to select to date, in terms of having so many players knocking on the door with strong performances. There has been a lot of cricket so far this season and outdoor training has been intense, so the players themselves have had ample opportunities to sort out the current pecking order.”
Bradburn signed off by saying, “Quality players have missed selection and are gutted not to feature this time, which is a strong sign of the depth that is evident now through the new Regional structure and Performance Academy. The squad has prepared well for the strong opposition we will face both in the home series and in the Netherlands Tri-series, while there is excitement building for these fantastic opportunities the team have been striving for.”
Here is Scotland Squad:
Kyle Coetzer (captain), Richie Berrington (vice-captain), Dylan Budge, Matthew Cross, Alasdair Evans, Michael Jones, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, Preston Mommsen, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Chris Sole, Mark Watt, Brad Wheal, Stuart Whittingham.
