Scotland call up Durham’s Michael Jones and Hampshire’s Brad Wheal for T20 World Cup



The pair have been included in a 15-man party for the tournament, in which the Scots, under captain Richie Berrington, will face England, Namibia, Oman, and Australia in Group B.

Scotland open their campaign in a mouth-watering clash against England in Bridgetown on Tuesday, June 4.

Head coach Doug Watson said: “It was a really difficult selection meeting, and it’s never easy getting it down to a squad of 15. 

“I think it was ultimately about getting the balance of the squad just right and we feel we’ve done that here.

“It’s good that we’ve got some of our county players available, and we are really excited with the 15 we’ve chosen, so now we can look forward to what lies ahead.

“To have Michael Jones and Brad Wheal available, their experience from previous T20 World Cups is crucial for the group. I’m looking forward to meeting them both, getting to know them and seeing their skills up close.

“That first game against England, it’ll be quite a day – but we won’t look too far ahead. We’ll just ensure that we prepare well as a team, and individually, to represent Scotland as best we can.”

The squad is due to leave for Trinidad and Tobago, where they will complete their preparations and play two warm-up games, on Sunday, May 26 before heading for Barbados.

Scotland provisional squad for T20 World Cup: Richie Berrington (captain), Matthew Cross, Brad Currie, Chris Greaves, Oli Hairs, Jack Jarvis, Michael Jones, Michael Leask, Brandon McMullen, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Chris Sole, Charlie Tear, Mark Watt, Brad Wheal.
