The Scotland matches are due to start at 10:45 in the morning UK time.

You will find more information on the Scots at the Cricket Scotland web site, www.cricketscotland.com. (Just leave the site alone )

In particular on the Scots squad for the games against Bangladesh
http://www.cricketeurope.org/SCRIPTD...0/001012.shtml

On the Scots players
http://www.cricketeurope.org/SCOTLAN...yerlines.shtml

And on their performances this year
http://www.btinternet.com/~sncl/2004ncl/csthome.htm

Of course we would like to have our four English County players available but they are otherwise occupied. Nothing like getting your excuses in early!

Keep an eye on the Rampant Lion (the scottish version of BanglaCricket).

www.rampant-lion.co.uk

I doubt it will be live but it should be pretty up to date.

Hopefully the weather will be ok and we'll get a couple of days of quality cricket. A win for Scotland wouldn't go amiss either!

All the best.

There are some Scottish players who have played for India and Pakistan one day in the last couple of years. I thought there was a waiting period - what's up with that? They aren't on the team to play Bangladesh either. I really think once you play for one country you shouldn't be allowed to play for anyone else.

It would be nice to hear from Scottish and Irish fans on how their home grown talent and local infrastructure is developing.

I think you mixed up Scottish national team and the team plays in some English tournaments. Similar to other county teams Scotland can also sign two foreigners for the English tournaments. This year Yasir Arafat and Sriram played for them. Last year Dravid played. This is not the case like UAE I think.

Scotland play in the National Cricket League Division 2 with some of the English counties and are called the Scottish Saltires in that competiton. A Saltire is the name of the Scottish flag by the way. Like the English counties they are allowed to play two overseas players but only in this league and the English one day knock out competition. The player profiles refer to the Scottish Saltires and include these players. Please don't jump to conclusions too quickly.

All the rest of the side play Scottish club cricket and play for Scotland between their work committments. They are not paid full time professional cricketers.

This is only their second year in the league. Last year they were lucky to have Dravid playing for 12 out of 18 games. They also had a South African Jon Kent who has played provincial cricket in South Africa and was playing as a professional in Scottish club cricket.

This year they had Sriram, of India A, for a limited number of games before he was picked for an India A tour. Yasir Arafat, who has played a few games for Pakistan A, has also played since he is also a club pro. Another club pro, a West Indian Reifer, replaced Arafat while he was training with Pakistan. However the team has played the last few games only with Arafat because the coach wants to give more experience to Scotland qualified players and because it saves money for the national cricket organisation. They are cash strapped after all.

As for Gavin Hamilton he is now playing for Durham County and has had a terrible year with injury. There is another Scot at Durham, Kyle Coetzer who is the brother of the Coetzer named in the squad. John Blain is playing for Yorkshire and Dougie Brown (also a former England player) plays for Warwickshirewho are hopefully to be the county champions. However none of these are available for the Bangladesh games since the counties, not surprisingly, will not let them play. But they sometimes do become available. It's like the Irish, they have 5/6 players in county cricket only one of whom played against you. Ed Joyce of Middlesex is Irish and is trying to qualify for England. As a result both teams suffer from not being able to put out their strongest sides. However that's cricketing life for us!

I didn't know that, thanks for the info. Sounds like Scotland and Ireland are getting a lot of good cricket even if they can't field all the players they want to - they might be able to in time. I was just thinking about your foreign players like Arafat and Sriram - you would be better off getting an Ashraful or Nafees Iqbal from bangladesh - will cost less and provide more value. We would like to see some of our players get county experience, but it hasn't happened yet.

ps we have a player by the name of Khaled Mahmud Sujon who is experienced in English conditions. He took 4 wickets yesterday and helped BD win the match. If he were picked up by Scotland or Ireland for the county leagues, and not released for future Bangladesh games, it would provide our fledgling test nation with a great service. We can even get sponsors to pay his salary so it wouldn't cost you anything!
