Scotland have named a 14-man squad to play Afghanistan in the final of the ICC Intercontinental Cup, which gets underway on 2nd December in Dubai.

The side will arrive in the United Arab Emirates on 23rd November for preparation and acclimatisation.

"After a long, hard season of cricket which started last January in Kenya, the final will be an excellent opportunity to finish on a real high," head coach Peter Steindl said.

"This group of players has worked exceptionally hard to reach the final and we will prepare thoroughly for the hard challenge that we know Afghanistan will pose. They have been the dominant team in this competition to date, but we are confident we can compete well against them."

Unavailable for Scotland due to work or educational commitments are Ewen Chalmers, Moneeb Iqbal and Ryan Watson.

Scotland squad: Gordon Drummond (captain), Fraser Watts, Ryan Flannigan, Kyle Coetzer, Preston Mommsen, Richie Berrington, Neil McCallum, Gregor Maiden, Majid Haq, Matthew Parker, Ross Lyons, Simon Smith, Gordon Goudie, Dewald Nel
