Scotland will miss the services of their key players due to county duties but the team is confident to do well when they take on Nepal in the ICC World Cricket League Championship (WCLC) matches on July 29 and 31.
After a disappointing performance in the World Twenty20 Qualifiers where they were knocked out from the league stage with just one victory, Nepal will hope to get some groove back delivering well against the Scots.
Scotland, led by Preston Mommsen, will be without Rob Taylor, Josh Davey, Calum McLeod, Freddie Coleman and Matt Machan with all ready to fulfil their county duties after the Qualifiers concludes.
However, having seen Nepal hit their lowest in the Qualifiers and the strength on their back-up players, the Scots are confident they will come hard against Nepal.
“A number of players are unavailable for this series, but the fact that we are able to name a very strong side is testament to the depth that is now building in Scottish cricket,” head coach Grad Bradburn told the official website of Cricket Scotland. Bradburn was confident to take advantage of home conditions.
“Nepal is a side we will respect highly, while we will be confident of bringing specific skills to the conditions at Ayr, which we know well,” said Bradburn.
The Scottish squad also includes Matthew Cross, Richie Berrington, Kyle Coetzer, Con de Lange, Alasdair Evans, Hamish Gardner, Michael Leask, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Craig Wallance and Mark Watt.
