Gordon Drummond, Cricket Scotland’s Pathway Manager and coach of the Scotland U19 squad, said: “The squad is excited about the opportunity to take part in the upcoming U19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa.  It’s a tough group but one that also presents a fantastic opportunity to take a few Full Member scalps which I know the boys are focused on achieving.  

“Our squad has variety and a great team spirit which they displayed during the ICC U19s Europe Cricket World Cup Qualifier [in which Scotland finished top of the group]. They have trained hard all winter and are looking forward to the outdoor preparation in Dubai leading into the tournament.  

“The players have set themselves some targets which if they play with the skill and belief, we know they can certainly achieve.”

Scotland has been placed in Group C for the event, joining Bangladesh, Pakistan and Zimbabwe for the first round after an unbeaten ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Europe campaign earlier in the summer.

Scotland will be supported by coaches Cedric English, Gordon Drummond and Toby Bailey.

Gus Mackay, Chief Executive of Cricket Scotland, says: “This is a great opportunity for the next generation of Scotland’s internationals to make their mark on the global stage.

Everyone involved at Cricket Scotland wishes the team all the best in the tournament and it’s important we compete with the other nations in our group.”
