Gordon Drummond to lead Scotland in Intercontinental Cup

Cricinfo staff

Gordon Drummond will lead Scotland's 13-member squad for the ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Kenya to be played in Nairobi from January 25 to 28. In the absence of some experienced players, the team will wear a youthful look in Kenya. Simon Smith returns from shoulder surgery to take his spot as the wicketkeeper.

The selectors named a different squad of 14 for the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifiers that will be held in UAE in February. Six new players will feature in a series of Twenty20 matches in Kenya against the hosts and Uganda before the UAE leg begins.

Drummond will relinquish the leadership role to Gavin Hamilton for the shortest format. Hamilton will also have the services of Fraser Watts, Ryan Watson, Neil McCallum and Jan Stander. Navdeep Poonia will also join the squad at this stage.

The full squads for each leg of the tour are as follows:

Intercontinental Cup: Gordon Drummond (capt), Richie Berrington, Kyle Coetzer, Euan Chalmers, Stewart Chalmers, Gordon Goudie, Majid Haq, Douglas Lockhart, Ross Lyons, Dewald Nel, Mathew Parker, Qasim Sheikh, Simon Smith (wk).

Twenty20 warm-ups in Kenya and ICC World Twenty20 Qualifiers: Gavin Hamilton (capt), Richie Berrington, Kyle Coetzer, Gordon Drummond, Gordon Goudie, Majid Haq, Ross Lyons, Neil McCallum, Dewald Nel, Navdeep Poonia, Simon Smith (wk), Jan Stander, Ryan Watson, Fraser Watts.
