Scotland have announced their 15-man squad for the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2020.
Scotland went undefeated at the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup Europe Qualifier earlier this year and are joined by Bangladesh, Pakistan and Zimbabwe in Group C at the global tournament, which begins next month.
Gordon Drummond, the squad’s coach, 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’s campaign begins on 19 January against Pakistan. They will face Bangladesh two days later and then take on Zimbabwe on 25 January.
Squad: Angus Guy, Tom Mackintosh, Ben Davidson, Callum Grant, Charlie Pee, Daniel Cairns, Durness Mackay-Champion, Euan McBeth, Jamie Cairns, Jasper Davidson, Kess Sajjad, Liam Naylor, Rory Hanley, Sean Fischer-Keogh, Uzzair Shah
