Hamilton, Coetzer return for England ODI

Cricinfo staff

Scotland captain Gavin Hamilton, allrounder Ryan Watson and Durham batsman Kyle Coetzer have been added to Scotland's squad to take on England at Grange Cricket Club on Saturday.

Scotland will be boosted by their return after a team containing four debutants fell to a six-wicket defeat to Netherlands on June 15. With Dewald Nel ruled out through injury, these three experienced players, as well as Neil McCallum and Ross Lyons, are the only players in the squad who played in the inaugural ODI against England two years ago.

"The remodelling of the national squad is now taking shape and it has a good blend of youth and experience," said chairman of selectors Iain Kennedy. "With young players such as Davey, Goudie, Mommsen, Berrington and Parker all under 23 and starting out their careers, it is pleasing that we have some really experienced players such as Hamilton, Watson, Lockhart and McCallum to support them as they develop as cricketers.

"The challenge can't get any harder than playing the Twenty20 world champions, but we are confident we can compete against them."

Scotland squad: Gavin Hamilton (capt), Gordon Drummond, Richie Berrington, Kyle Coetzer, Josh Davey, Gordon Goudie, Majid Haq, Ross Lyons, Douglas Lockhart, Neil McCallum, Gregor Maiden, Preston Mommsen, Matthew Parker and Ryan Watson.
