Cricket Scotland, still searching for a major sponsor to replace Lloyds Bank, will land a $60,000 windfall if its team can beat Afghanistan in the Intercontinental Cup final in Dubai.

Pete Steindl's side is attempting to win the tournament for non-Test countries for the first time since 2004. They earned $40,000 for reaching the final, but victory will see them scoop a much bigger sum.

"We have already spent most of the $40,000 taking the squad out a week early to prepare for the game," Cricket Scotland chief executive Roddy Smith said. "The main objective of the players is to get their hands on the trophy but it would be a nice bonus to receive the money."

The five-day final at the Dubai International Stadium will be streamed live thanks to a partnership between Cricket Scotland and the ICC, with highlights also available on Cricinfo.
