Must read

Scotland is all set to fine-tune their skills for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 with a T20I tri-series involving the Netherlands and Ireland. This tri-series is scheduled to take place in Amstelveen, Netherlands, from May 18 to May 24.

The upcoming T20I tri-series will serve as a perfect opportunity for the Netherlands, Scotland, and Ireland to fine-tune their squads and strategies for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024, which is set to be co-hosted by the West Indies and the USA from June 1.

On Wednesday, May 1, Cricket Scotland announced a 14-member squad for the upcoming T20I tri-series against the Netherlands and Ireland. Richie Berrington will lead Scotland in the crucial series.

With all three participating teams set to feature in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, teams have until May 25 to make any adjustments to their squads, and this series will present them with an ideal opportunity to test their teams.

The Scotland squad for the upcoming T20I tri-series featured almost all those players who played in the recent T20I series against the UAE, with only two changes made by Cricket Scotland. Andrew Umeed, who was part of the T20I squad for the UAE series, was not picked for the T20I tri-series due to an injury that he sustained during the last series.

Well, the promising 19-year-old batter Charlie Tear has been named in the Scotland squad as Umeed’s replacement. Tear had made his international debut in March against the UAE. Another notable omission is spinner James Dickinson, who made his debut against the UAE but featured in only one match.

Notably, after losing the first game, Scotland made a strong comeback and won the T20I series by a 2-1 margin against the UAE, and they would like to continue their form in the upcoming T20I tri-series against the Netherlands and Ireland.

Here’s Scotland’s squad for the T20I Tri-series against the Netherlands and Ireland:

Richie Berrington (c), Matthew Cross, Brad Currie, Chris Greaves, Oli Hairs, Jack Jarvis, Michael Leask, Gavin Main, Brandon McMullen, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Chris Sole, Charlie Tear, Mark Watt.

Here’s the schedule for the T20I Tri-series

18 May – Scotland vs Netherlands

19 May – Ireland vs Netherlands

20 May – Scotland vs Ireland

22 May – Scotland vs Netherlands

23 May – Scotland vs Ireland

24 May – Ireland vs Netherlands

Notably, Scotland will begin their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign with a match against England on June 4, and then they will face Namibia, Oman, and Australia in the tournament. However, Scotland has not yet announced the primary squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in 2024.

 On the other hand, the defending champions, England, Australia, India, New Zealand, Afghanistan, and India, have unveiled their 15-member squad for the upcoming showpiece event in the USA and West Indies. The ICC had set the deadline for all the participating teams to announce their primary squad for the tournament by May 1, 2024.
