Scotland announced their squad for the upcoming ICC Mens T20 World Cup on 9 September. In this, Kyle Coetzer is all set to lead the team. Former England batsman Jonathan Trott has been inducted as batting consultant.
Scotland will announce the final 15-man squad by 10 October, which will include two reserve players. The Scottish side includes stalwarts like Richie Berrington, Callum McLeod, Safyan Sharif, Matthew Cross and Eli Evans. The trot experience from the previous World Cup and Ashes series will help the team prepare for pressure situations and adapt to the demands of ICC tournaments.
