Scotland squad to face MCC
Scotland today named their squad to travel down to Lord’s for their fixture against Marylebone Cricket Club on the 22nd April.
The match will be a 50 over contest and will be Scotland’s first match since defeating the United Arab Emirates to qualify for the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
The capped fixture will see Calum MacLeod captain the Scottish side on cricket’s hallowed turf where they will face two former Scotland internationals, Jamie Kerr and Gregor Maiden, who will be representing the MCC.
Preston Mommsen (pelvis) and Richie Berrington (hamstring) won’t feature as a precaution, which means there are places for U19 players Mark Watt and Andrew Umeed, after both produced impressive performances during the 2014 ICC U19 World Cup.
Sandy Scotland will also be officiating as an on-field umpire for the match.
Calum MacLeod, who is currently on loan at Durham CCC, said, “It’s the first opportunity I’ve had to play at Lord’s, and obviously it will be a great honour. It will be an opportunity for some of the guys to push their case for our big game against England in Aberdeen on May 9th, and one we’re all really looking forward to.”
