Wardlaw earns Scotland call-up
Yorkshire seamer Iain Wardlaw has today been announced in the Scotland squad ahead of their tour to the UAE, commencing later this month, where they will take on Afghanistan in all three formats of the game.
The Scotland team will play two T20 fixtures, two World Cricket League fixtures and a four-day Intercontinental Cup tie, meaning there will be plenty to play for. The tour will commence with three warm up fixtures against the Emirates Cricket Board Blues.
Wardlaw, who has impressed in a number of training camps this year, is in line for a first cap during the tour. Scotland, currently placed second in the World Cricket League, will be looking to make strides towards claiming one of the two automatic spots to the ICC 2015 World Cup.
