Kyle Coetzer makes a return
Cricket Scotland today announced their Intercontinental Cup and One Day International squads to take on the Netherlands for the forthcoming games in Aberdeen. The four day I-Cup match will commence next Tuesday (21 June) with the two ODIs taking place on June 28 and 29.
Scotland will be looking to go one better than their 2010 I-Cup campaign, which saw them eventually lose out to the emerging Afghanistan in the final.
Durham's Kyle Coetzer will return to Scotland colours, while Carlton's Alasdair Evans and Uddingston's Calum MacLeod have also been included in the squad following impressive performances at club and regional level.
Simon Smith continues as wicket keeper in the four day format while Neil McCallum, Preston Mommsen and Fraser Watts will also feature.
The only changes for the subsequent One Day Internationals will see Ryan Flannigan make way for Middlesex's Josh Davey. Gregor Maiden takes up the wicket keeping duties from Simon Smith. Young Dunfermline seam bowler Safyaan Sharif will join the squad and will be hoping to make his International debut.
