Steindl agrees new Scotland deal
Scotland head coach Peter Steindl has agreed a three-year contract extension.
The 41-year-old has been in charge since 2008 and his new deal will take him to December 2014.
Cricket Scotland acted after a run of 11 wins from 15 one-day games against Associate sides and runners-up spots in the World Cricket League Division 1 and Intercontinental Cup.
Chief executive Roddy Smith said: "We are delighted that Peter has agreed to a contract extension. Continuity is vital as we look to progress with a young side that Peter has developed into a cohesive and competitive unit.
"He has formed an excellent management team with captain Gordon Drummond and we all look forward to working together in the next few important years."
Australian-born Steindl added: "I am delighted to be given the opportunity by Cricket Scotland to continue working with the Scotland team.
"I have enjoyed the challenges that this position has brought. I am committed to working hard with my support staff, Gordon and the team to build upon the improvements we have made over the last two years."
Cricket Scotland confirmed the news on the eve of the national team's departure on a seven-week tour of United Arab Emirates, for the World Twenty20 Qualifier, and Sri Lanka.
