Smith nets Scotland call

Glamorgan teenager Ruaidhri Smith has been named in the Scotland squad for the one-day series against Netherlands.

The 19-year-old Glasgow-born all-rounder replaces Leicestershire's Rob Taylor in the only change to the party that suffered a 39-run defeat against England last month.

Captain Kyle Coetzer, of Northamptonshire, and Sussex all-rounder Matt Machan are both available for the three games at Glasgow's Titwood ground next week.

The series provides former New Zealand A coach Grant Bradburn with his first matches in charge of Scotland.

Bradburn said: "It is both an honour and a privilege to coach Scotland and I am very much looking forward to arriving and rolling my sleeves up in the role.

"My initial visit during the England game in May confirmed for me the abundance of talent and skill that we have in the extended Scotland squad.

"I sense a strong desire from the players and staff to continually improve and I look forward to arriving in Scotland with my family over the coming days and setting about building on the significant progress Cricket Scotland has made."

Scotland squad: Kyle Coetzer, Preston Mommsen, Richie Berrington, Freddie Coleman, Matthew Cross, Josh Davey, Alasdair Evans, Majid Haq, Michael Leask, Matt Machan, Calum MacLeod, Safyaan Sharif, Ruaidhri Smith, Iain Wardlaw.
