Scotland have announced their squads for the ICC World Twenty20 qualifiers in Dubai and fixtures in the Intercontinental Cup and World Cricket League Championship. The players are set to depart from Glasgow for the UAE on Friday, ahead of a seven-week programme.

The team's star batsman Kyle Coetzer will miss the three-day Intercontinental Cup match against UAE in Sharjah on February 16-19, due to his Bangladesh Premier League commitments. The batsmen Ewan Chalmers, 22, and Freddie Coleman, 20, along with 23-year-old bowler Alasdair Evans will get chances to impress.

Chalmers, Coleman, Evans and Steve Smith will then leave the squad, with Josh Davey, Fraser Watts, Calvin Burnett, Jan Stander and Matthew Parker taking their places for a two-week training camp in Sri Lanka. Whilst there, Scotland will play a mixture of 50- and 20-over cricket against local sides. They will return to Sharjah on March 5, with Coetzer joining the squad for a pair of one-day fixtures against UAE in the World Cricket League Championship and the World Twenty20 qualifiers, in which Scotland will play at least seven games.

"This will be a challenging tour for the squad, which will incorporate all three forms of the game," head coach Peter Steindl said. "Our preparations have gone well to date and we are looking to transfer this work quickly when we arrive in Sharjah on Saturday."

@SirBobJones: Most of them are born in Scotland. This is the case unlike Netherlands, Canada, USA etc. because the board has a policy to have a minimum no. of Scottish players.

I think a few of them were actually born in Scotland too.
