Gordon Drummond will lead Scotland's hopes.
Gordon Drummond will take over the Scotland captaincy for the ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Canada.

With the squad averaging under the age of 25, the Scots will be hoping to improve on a poor year which saw them miss out on a place at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.

Head coach Peter Steindl told the Cricket Scotland website: "With these selections, we are starting to look ahead over the next four years and, broadly speaking, we are seeking to give the younger generation as much experience as we can.

"We believe that some cricketers are more suited to the longer form of the game, while some flourish in the one-day variety. With more and more top-quality youngsters pushing for places in the national squads, those squads may show more differences as time goes on. It?s up to the players to make their case on the field."

I-Cup captain Gordon Drummond added: "This is an exciting time for Scottish cricket and I am delighted to have been asked to take responsibility for the I-Cup squad, where we need players who are in for the long haul. The matches against Canada and, next month, Ireland, will certainly be a test to be savoured. The players will, I?m sure, rise to the occasion."

Squad: Gordon Drummond (c), Ryan Watson, Fraser Watts, Jan Stander, Neil McCallum, Simon Smith (w), Qasim Sheikh, Moneeb Iqbal, Majid Haq, Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Ewan Chalmers.
