Kyle Coetzer, the Durham batsman, has been recalled to Scotland's squads for the Intercontinental Cup and one-day internationals against Netherlands later this month.

Coetzer, with five ODI caps to his name, last played for Scotland in June 2010 and will bring some experience to the middle order. Alasdair Evans, who has played two ODIs, is also back in the squad alongside Calum MacLeod after the pair showed strong form at club and regional level.

There will be different wicketkeepers in each format with Simon Smith taking the gloves for the four-day game and Gregor Maiden in the role for the ODIs. The shorter format also includes Josh Davey, the Middlesex batsman, in place of Ryan Flannigan.

Meanwhile, Safyaan Sharif, a 20-year-old seamer, will be hoping to make his international debut after being selected for the ODIs.

The Intercontinental Cup match begins on June 21 with the two ODIs taking place on June 28 and 29 in Aberdeen.

Intercontinental Cup squad: Gordon Drummond (capt), Fraser Watts, Preston Mommsen, Alasdair Evans, Kyle Coetzer, Ryan Flannigan, Neil McCallum, Simon Smith (w/k), Gordon Goudie, Calum MacLeod, Majid Haq, Richie Berrington
