Trott to assist Scotland in T20 World Cup

The former England batter has been roped in as 'Batting Lead'

Scotland have managed to rope in former England batsman Jonathan Trott as 'Batting Lead' for the upcoming T20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman. They have also appointed a "Well-being Manager" to support the players and staff during the showpiece event. Louise Finlayson is an experienced mental skills coach and will work closely with all the members involved. Scotland have named a provisional 17-member squad, which will be reduced to 15 before October 10.

"The pandemic has forced us into operating in Managed Environments and the role of a Well-being Manager has been identified as critical to support the players and staff of what we hope will be a long and successful tour," said Cricket Scotland CEO, Gus Mackay.

Talking about Trott, head coach Shane Burger said: "What we have in Jonathan Trott is great knowledge and experience of high-performance environments. He's played in World Cups, Ashes Series and travelled to many destinations around the world. He also understands the demands and high pressures of international sport and the environments that they bring with them and it'll be fantastic to have him as a support in the build-up to the World Cup.

Kyle Coetzer will continue to lead the side and will have experienced players like Richie Berrington, Calum Macleod, Safyaan Sharif, Matthew Cross and Alasdair Evans in the squad to assist him. Josh Davey, Michael Leask, George Munsey and Mark Watt, who were part of the 2016 T20 World Cup squad, have also been included. Meanwhile, Dylan Budge, Chris Greaves, Oli Hairs, Chris Sole, Hamza Tahir, Craig Wallace and Brad Wheal will be playing their first world tournament for Scotland.

"This squad has worked hard over a long period of time now and deserves the opportunity to show the world what we are about. This is an experienced, versatile and exciting group of players and we're looking forward to embracing the challenges ahead as a team," said Burger.

Chairman of selectors Iain Kennedy said: "I'm very happy with the squad that we've selected. It's a well-balanced group, with match winners in every department of the game led by one of the most experienced leaders in the competition in Kyle Coetzer."

Scotland will play their first game of the tournament against Bangladesh on October 17 in Al Amerat. They will then take on Papua New Guinea on October 19 and Oman on October 21. In order to qualify for the Super 12 stage, Scotland will first have to achieve a top-two finish in their group.

Squad: Kyle Coetzer. Richard Berrington, Dylan Budge, Matthew Cross (wk), Josh Davey, Alasdair Evans, Chris Greaves, Oli Hairs, Michael Leask,Calum Macleod, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Chris Sole, Hamza Tahir, Craig Wallace (wk), Mark Watt, Brad Wheal.
