Coetzer leads Scotland for T20 World Cup

Edinburgh: Kyle Coetzer will captain an experienced Scotland side for October's T20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman.

Coetzer is joined by the likes of Richie Berrington, Calum Macleod, Safyaan Sharif, Matthew Cross and Ally Evans, who have more than 1,000 caps between them.

Scotland have only played twice since 2019 because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

"This is an experienced, versatile and exciting group of players," head coach Shane Burger said.

"This squad has worked hard over a long period of time now and deserves the opportunity to show the world what we are about."

Former England batsman Jonathan Trott will join the coaching set-up as a batting consultant.
