Former Scotland skipper Preston Mommsen has been included in the World Cricket League squad that will take on Namibia in a two-match series to be played on 11th and 13th June at Grange Cricket Club in Edinburgh.

Mommsen had already announced his retirement from international cricket last year due to professional commitments but now will feature for Scotland once again in the World Cricket League Championship.

Apart from the two World Cricket League games, Scotland will also take on Namibia in an Inter-Continental game to be played between 6th and 9th June at Ayr Cricket Club. Kyle Coetzer, who replaced Mommsen as captain will continue to lead the side with Con de Lange as his deputy.

Scotland Head Coach Grant Bradburn is excited by the Inter-Continental fixture against Namibia.

“The team are looking forward to this block of international cricket at home throughout June. Preparation over the winter and early part of the summer has been excellent and the players are now itching to play.

"The I-Cup is a format we value highly, however we have had limited actual game time, as 11 of our 16 days of I-Cup cricket during this 3-year cycle, have been washed out.

"We look forward to our opening contest vs Namibia in Ayr, where the conditions normally offer something for every skill set.”

Scotland will also host Zimbabwe following the World Cricket League contests in a two-match ODI series to be played on 15th and 17th June.

Intercontinental Cup Squad against Namibia:

Kyle Coetzer (Captain), Con de Lange (vice-captain), Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Alasdair Evans, Safyaan Sharif, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, Mark Watt, George Munsey, Craig Wallace, Chris Sole, Stuart Whittingham.
