Drummond to lead Scotland in tour of the Netherlands
Gordon Drummond has been named as captain of the Scotland team that will take on the Netherlands in the four-day ICC Intercontinental Cup fixture in Deventer June 10 to 13, and the solitary ODI in Rotterdam on June 15. He takes the reins from Gavin Hamilton who is unavailable due to business commitments. Ryan Watson and Omer Hussain also miss out for the same reason, while Dewald Nel is out injured. Freddie Coleman was not considered for selection
Opening batsman Preston Mommsen is the only uncapped player in the side. The 22 year-old has been in fine form recently, scoring an undefeated hundred in the Scotland Lions' win against Leicestershire second XI, and recently completed his four-year residency after migrating from South Africa.
Aberdeen-born Josh Davey will replace Simon Smith in the squad for the solitary ODI that follows the four-day fixture. The 19 year-old Davey has turned out for Middlesex in two CB40 games this season.
"Josh is a young cricketer who has been making excellent strides forward this year. He has scored a lot of runs in the Middlesex second team and had a few first-team opportunities. He will be a great addition to our squad," Peter Steindl, the head-coach, said about the young allrounder.
Four-day squad: Gordon Drummond (capt), Douglas Lockhart, Preston Mommsen, Qasim Sheikh, Richie Berrington, Neil McCallum, Gregor Maiden, Majid Haq, Moneeb Iqbal, Matthew Parker, Gordon Goudie, Ross Lyons and Simon Smith.
