Scotland have announced that one of their main aims during the World Cup is to cause a major upset.

However, this will be no easy feat as Scotland are in Group A, which also includes New Zealand, Australia, England, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

This will be Scotland’s third appearance in the tournament and they will be led by Preston Mommsen.

Speaking about Scotland’s World Cup squad, head coach Grant Bradburn stated that there were no major surprises when it came to inclusions and exclusions.

“It is great to announce our squad for the Cricket World Cup, and it is a fantastic achievement for the players to be named in the final 15,” he said. “They have all worked hard over a long period of time, as they continue to do out here in Dubai during the current tri-series.

“There is so much natural ability in this squad and we go to the World Cup aiming to do what no other squad has done before and win games of cricket.”

Scotland’s World Cup Squad: Preston Mommsen (captain), Kyle Coetzer, Richie Berrington, Frederick Coleman, Matthew Cross, Joshua Davey, Alasdair Evans, Hamish Gardiner, Majid Haq, Michael Leask, Matt Machan, Calum MacLeod, Safyaan Sharif, Robert Taylor, Iain Wardlaw
