The Scotland squad for the two Pakistan T20s and tour for the Netherlands Tri-series has been announced.

Kyle Coetzer is named as captain for the 12 and 13 June T20s, alongside the experienced Richie Berrington who will continue in the role of vice-captain.

Craig Wallace has been included in the squad as has left-arm spinner Hamza Tahir. The pair come in for Michael Jones and Preston Mommsen from the squad selected to face England in the ODI on June 10.

Scotland captain Coetzer commented, “This will be a huge occasion, not only for the playing squad, but for the Cricket Scotland organisation as a whole. To be hosting the two number one team’s in 50 over and 20 over format in a few days is not something that comes around every day.

We need to make sure we are willing to soak up the special day and not be afraid to grab the game with our exciting, expressive style.”

Scotland will then travel to the Netherlands immediately after the Grange matches for a T20 Tri-series with the hosts and Ireland.

Online ticket sales will close for the Pakistan series on 7 June with some tickets available on the gate on the day.

Scotland squad for Pakistan and Tri Series; Kyle Coetzer (captain), Richie Berrington (vice-captain), Dylan Budge, Matthew Cross, Alasdair Evans, Craig Wallace, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, Hamza Tahir, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Chris Sole, Mark Watt, Brad Wheal, Stuart Whittingham.
