C&G Trophy April 19, 2006

Scotland draft in Moran

Cricinfo staff

Scotland have signed Ian Moran, an allrounder from New South Wales, to strengthen their squad ahead of their C&G Trophy campaign, which starts against Warwickshire on April 30.

Moran joins Corey Richards, the NSW batsman, in the squad after a productive season playing grade cricket in Sydney. He scored 742 and took 38 wickets, finishing as the leading player, and although he has yet to feature in first-class he was part of the NSW Twenty20 squad.

Peter Drinnen, the Scotland coach, said: "We need to give World Cup-qualified players every chance to perform. But we also need to be able to compete effectively in this first year of the new C&G Trophy format."
