Scotland name 17-player provisional squad for T20 World Cup

T20 World Cup

Scotland, on 9 September, announced their squad for the upcoming ICC Men's T20 World Cup with Kyle Coetzer all set to lead the side, with former England batter Jonathan Trott roped in as batting consultant.

Scotland will announce a final 15-member squad by 10 October, with two reserve players tagging along.

The Scottish side sees the inclusion of veterans Richie Berrington, Calum Macleod, Safyaan Sharif, Matthew Cross and Ally Evans, who will be led by Kyle Coetzer.

The former England batter, Jonathan Trott has been roped in as batting consultant for the side. Trott's experience from the previous World Cups and the Ashes series will help the side prepare for pressure situations and acclimatise to the demands of ICC tournaments.

Scotland head coach Shane Burger reflected the same when he said, "What we have in Jonathan Trott is great knowledge and experience of high-performance environments. He’s played in World Cups, Ashes Series and travelled to many destinations around the world. He also understands the demands and high pressures of international sport and the environments that they bring with them and it’ll be fantastic to have him as a support in the build-up to the World Cup,”

Josh Davey, Michael Leask, George Munsey and Mark Watt, who were all in the squad for the last ICC T20 World Cup in 2016, also find a spot. While Dylan Budge, Chris Greaves, Oli Hairs, Chris Sole, Hamza Tahir, Craig Wallace and Brad Wheal will be part of the tournament for the first time.

Burger believes Scotland is prepared to show the world what they are capable of in the upcoming matches.

“This squad has worked hard over a long period of time now and deserves the opportunity to show the world what we are about. This is an experienced, versatile and exciting group of players and we’re looking forward to embracing the challenges ahead as a team.”

Scotland will commence their tournament's journey against Bangladesh in Round 1 of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 on 17 October in Oman. They will then compete against Papua New Guinea (19 October) and Oman (21 October). The top two teams will move to the Super12 stage of the marquee event.
