Scotland stick with winning squad

Scotland's cricket selectors have named an unchanged side for the World Cup following a successful build-up in Kenya over the last few weeks.

"We went to Kenya with two aims, first to qualify for the Twenty20 World Championship and also to inflict a first defeat on the host country," said Peter Drinnen, the coach. "We achieved both these objectives, and it is therefore no surprise that we are endorsing the entire squad for the World Cup itself."

Scotland open their campaign in St Kitts against Australia on March 14, then play South Africa on March 20 and the Netherlands four days later.

Scotland squad Craig Wright (capt), John Blain, Dougie Brown, Gavin Hamilton, Majid Haq, Paul Hoffmann, Douglas Lockhart, Ross Lyons, Neil McCallum, Dewald Nel, Navdeep Poonia, Glenn Rogers, Colin Smith, Ryan Watson, Fraser Watts.
