Scotland have named their 15-man squad for April's ICC World Cup Qualifiers in South Africa.

There are few surprises in the side. South African-born Jan Stander is likely to make his debut after completing his four-year residency qualification, while allrounder Moneeb Iqbal returns to the squad six years after his only previous appearance.

"We are expecting the toughest of tests in the qualifiers and are under no illusions as to the challenge ahead of us," Peter Steindl, the head coach, said. "The players have all worked exceptionally hard over the winter and it left the selectors with a difficult task in finalising their choices. Our squad has a good balance between youth and experience and has been selected with the conditions we know we will face in South Africa in mind."

Scotland squad: John Blain (Yorkshire), Kyle Coetzer (Durham), Gordon Goudie (West of Scotland), Gavin Hamilton (East Brierly), Majid Haq (Clydesdale), Moneeb Iqbal (West of Scotland), Neil McCallum (Grange), Calum MacLeod (Warwickshire), Dewald Nel (Greenock), Navdeep Poonia (Warwickshire), Qasim Sheikh (Clydesdale), Colin Smith (Aberdeenshire), Jan Stander (Stoneywood Dyce), Ryan Watson (Forfarshire), Craig Wright (Greenock).

Reserves: Gordon Drummond (Carlton), Ross Lyons (Clydesdale), Simon Smith (Grange), Fraser Watts (Carlton).
