24th-28th May: 2nd Test, Headingley
Cricket Scotland have confirmed that Gordon Drummond will take over as full-time captain of Scotland following the resignation of Gavin Hamilton.
Hamilton announced his decision to stand down following the One-Day International against England on Saturday, 19th June, a game in which Scotland were beaten by seven wickets.
Drummond has led the side during their ICC Intercontinental Cup campaign and has overseen their progress to the top of the table and he will take charge for the first time as full-time captain when Scotland play India A later this week.
"We are very grateful to Gavin Hamilton for all his efforts as our captain over the last year," chairman of selectors Iain Kennedy said.
"He took over at a difficult time and has been instrumental in the change process we are undertaking in the national squad. He agreed to take on the role whilst we identified a long-term successor. Now, as always, he has put the team first by realising that the time is right to pass on the reins. It is great news that he is keen to continue playing for Scotland, and we look forward to him continuing to score heavily for us.
"Gordon has done a great job whilst deputising for Gavin, and we are delighted he has accepted the invitation to become Scotland captain. He is a natural leader, has a good cricketing brain and has led from the front in his games as captain to date. It is important that we have stability in leadership as our new team takes shape, and Gordon will give us this in all forms of the game."
