Australian allrounder Ian Moran has received an unexpected call-up to rejoin the Scotland side after South African Arno Jacobs was released to join Leicestershire.

Moran, who is this year's professional at Uddingston, played nine matches last season.

Roddy Smith, chief executive of Cricket Scotland, said: "Leicestershire wanted to sign Arno for the remainder of the season, and Cricket Scotland was delighted to help further his professional career by agreeing to the request. It is a shame to lose Arno after just three games, but I am sure he will be a great success for Leicestershire and we wish him well."
