Scotland have named a strong squad to play Bangladesh in their one-off One-Day International on Monday 19th July, with two county players made available and the return of former captain Gavin Hamilton.

The two sides meet in an ODI in Scotland for the first time since their clash in the 1999 World Cup and for the fourth time overall following matches in Mirpur and Chittagong in 2006.

Durham's Kyle Coetzer and Middlesex's Josh Davey will be available for selection for the game as will Hamiton - for the first time under new captain Gordon Drummond.

The majority of the players who won five out of seven matches on their way to a second-placed finish at the ICC World Cricket Laegue Division One make up the rest of the squad.

"We are looking forward to playing another Test-playing nation at home," head coach Peter Steindl said.

"We aim to continue the fighting spirit that we have demonstrated so far this season and look forward to the challenge that Bangladesh will provide us."

Scotland ODI squad: Gordon Drummond (captain), Richie Berrington, Kyle Coetzer, Josh Davey, Gordon Goudie, Gavin Hamilton, Majid Haq, Moneeb Iqbal, Dougie Lockhart, Ross Lyons, Neil McCallum, Preston Mommsen, Matthew Parker, Fraser Watts
