Scotland A Squad to face Warwickshire

19 Apr


Cricket Scotland has today announced their A team squad to travel down to Edgbaston next Monday to play Warwickshire 2XI.

With a number of members of the Scotland squad that toured the UAE in February and March unavailable for upcoming fixtures due to county commitments, this game will give a number of players the opportunity to push their cause for a slot in the Saltires Yorkshire Bank 40 squad.

The squad will contain all of Scotland’s current full-time contracted players, except for Safyaan Sharif who is currently injured.

Summer contracted players Ewan Chalmers, Calvin Burnett and Craig Wallace all have university commitments and are therefore unavailable.

Matthew Cross will be looking to impress following notable performances for Nottinghamshire and Loughbourgh University, while Scotland U19 batsmen Andrew Umeed also makes the squad, along with Josh Edwards and Michael Leask.

The Scotland A team will be coached by Pete Steindl and Toby Bailey and will be captained by Preston Mommsen.

Coach Pete Steindl said, “It’s great to be able to include Dewald in the squad after a year out, he has been consolidating his fitness from a serious injury and he will add real value to the seam attack.

It is a great opportunity for some of the U19 players who performed well in Sri Lanka. This is a great chance for some of the guys to show us what they are capable of against strong opposition.”

Update | Aman Bailwal has come into the squad after Gavin Main picked up a side strain whilst playing for Durham Academy.
