From the preliminary squad of 17 members announced, Chris Sole and Oli Hairs failed to make the final squad. While Sole remains a reserve player, Hairs will return to the UK after picking up a shoulder injury during a warm-up match against Papua New Guinea on Friday. Michael Jones will join the team as cover for Hairs.

“It was a very tough decision because we have a lot of depth in Scottish cricket at the moment,” Scotland head coach Shane Burger said as he reflected on the team selection. “There is a lot of skill, talent, versatility and adaptability in the squad and many of them have put their hands up at various times recently. We have also tried for the last 18 months, even during Covid, to look forward to this hand – Dinja Tazza and think how the combinations will be.”

“I am very excited about the spin bowling attack we can put together. We have a wrist spinner in Chris Greaves who has done well in his last two outings for Scotland and then of course we have the two left arm spinners in Hamza Tahir and Mark Watt who are consistent performers as well as Michael Leask who is in the form of his life for the moment with both bat and ball.

“From a seam bowling point of view we have the evergreen Safyaan Sharif who is one of the best death bowlers out there, along with Josh Davey and Brad Wheal who are coming off really good county seasons. And then you have Ally Evans with his height who has had a fantastic season and has probably been one of our better bowlers of late.

“From a batting point of view, we have the power of George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer up front. It is really disappointing to lose Oli Hairs. It’s a big loss for us, but we also know that there are people like Matthew Cross, Calum MacLeod and Dylan Budge who can come in and really play well in the top and middle order.

“As a team we feel we are covered and this has been a long time coming. There was a lot of hard work that went into it, a lot of thought, so kudos to the voters and everyone who helped with this. We are excited, looking forward to the World Cup.”
