Bruce Patterson, Scotland's veteran opening batsman, has been named in Scotland's squad, and is set to make his National League debut against Durham on June 20.

Patterson, 38, replaces Steve Knox after convincing the selectors with innings of 33 and 51 in the Intercontinental Cup match against Holland last weekend, which ended in a draw. He also picked up two cheap wickets, his first in international cricket, in Holland's second innings. That game was Patterson's first for Scotland in three years.

Apart from his inclusion, the side is unchanged from Scotland's previous game.

Scotland squad Craig Wright (capt), Yasir Arafat, Asim Butt, Cedric English, Paul Hoffman, Dewald Nel, Bruce Patterson, Colin Smith, Sidharan Sriram, Ian Stanger, Ryan Watson, Fraser Watts.
