Kyle Coetzer added to World T20 Qualifying Squad

10 Jun

Cricket Scotland has released a statement on the exclusion of Kyle Coetzer from the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifying squad, and wish to clarify the situation. 

The organisation initially believed it was acting in Kyle Coetzer's best interest by not selecting him for the World Twenty20 Qualifiers and allowing him to concentrate on securing his future in county cricket. 

This was based on a number of conversations that were had with the player before the squad was submitted to Dubai last Friday, as to meet the ICC deadline requirements. 

Having since discussed this with the Kyle, he clearly believed that if he was unable to secure a county loan deal through July he would be included in the squad for the competition. 

Cricket Scotland has met with Kyle in the last 24 hours and clarified the situation. Both parties will now move forward and wish to state that there is no rift between the player and the organisation. 

Coincidentally, Freddie Coleman has withdrawn from the squad due to personal circumstances. As a result Kyle Coetzer has now been added to the squad for the tournament.
