West Indian fast bowler Vasbert Drakes is to join the Scotland side for one match only - their final home game in the National League on Sunday September 18, against Warwickshire.

Drakes, 36, has played 12 Test matches and has taken more than 600 wickets in first-class cricket in a career spanning 13 years.

He has played in Scotland before, making his first appearance in a benefit match for Gordon Greenidge when he was the professional at Greenock Cricket Club, and most recently as a member of the celebrity Lashings team which played Scotland in a Twenty20 match last year.
