Cricket Scotland have announced their Scotland Selection to play the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) at Titwood, Clydesdale for a three day encounter, starting tomorrow (11-13 August).
Included is a number of players from Scotland’s ICC World T20 campaign, with captain Preston Mommsen leading a side with a good mix of experience and youth.
Two members of the Scotland u19 side who recently won qualification for the 2016 u19 World Cup earn a taste of senior experience, with leg-spinner Harris Aslam and seamer Scott Cameron given an opportunity.
There is also an opportunity for Hampshire’s Bradley Wheal, 18, to don the Thistle for the first time. Wheal who’s mother was born in Glasgow is eager to push his case forward for full Scotland selection, while Ruaidhri Smith will take a break from his Glamorgan commitments to join the squad.
Scotland coach Grant Bradburn said, “On the back of a successful World T20 Qualifier and series against Nepal, the squad are looking forward to getting back on to the field together as we build towards an important series v Netherlands away in September. We welcome a number of new faces who have earned an opportunity for this fixture v MCC."
Play will start at 11am and will be free entry.
