Netherlands Women have named a 14-strong squad for a three-match series of one-day matches against Scotland, the winner of which will qualify for the 2016 ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier.

As Ireland will qualify for the global qualifier due to their ranking, Netherlands and Scotland are left to battle it out for the right to join them among the other sides trying to reach the finals in England in 2017.

The winners will join Bangladesh, Ireland, Zimbabwe, the winners of the ICC East-Asia Pacific tournament and an Asian qualifier, and the four sides that finish at the bottom of the ongoing ICC Women's Championship in the global qualifier to be held early next year.

The top four sides in the global qualifier will make the Women's World Cup in England.

All three Netherlands-Scotland matches will be hosted by Garon Park, Southend in Essex between 12th and 15th July and Netherlands have recalled experienced pair Helmien Rambaldo and Marloes Braat to their squad.

The team will be captained by Esther de Lange and coached by Sean Trouw.

Netherlands Women: Esther de Lange (captain), Marloes Braat, Esther Corder, Sterre Kalis, Lisa Klokgeiters, Babette de Leede, Helmien Rambaldo, Heather Siegers, Silver Siegers, Cher van Slobbe, Annemijn Thomson, Coco Steenstra Toussaint, Miranda Veringmeier, Julia van der Werf.
