Scotland And Canada Name Squads For Key Games
Both Scotland and Canada have named their squads for the ICC Intercontinental Cup clash between the two sides which begins on 4th July.
The teams will then play two World Cricket League One-Day Internationals in Ediinburgh on 9th and 11th July.
A strong Scotland squad includes contracted players Matthew Parker, Richie Berrington, Gordon Goudie, Majid Haq and Ryan Flannigan as well as a number of players who are playing county cricket.
Alisdair Evans (Derbyshire), Preston Mommsen (Leicestershire), Calum MacLeod (Northamptonshire) and Josh Davey (Middlesex) are all available to Scotland.
"We are looking to continue where we left off in the UAE in the Intercontinental Cup where we had a comfortable victory," Drummond said.
"Canada will obviously be challenging opposition, but in our conditions we are optimistic. Another victory would push us close to the top of the table and give us a shout at reaching the final once again.
"In the World Cricket League, after a couple of disappointing results against the UAE we will be looking to get back to winning ways with two matches against the same opposition. These are obviously massive matches if we are going to reach the 2015 World Cup. “
"We have a decent record against Canada at home and, with the strength and depth we have in both squads, are confident of coming out on top."
