Scotland captain Gavin Hamilton
Hamilton made 60 the last time England were in Edinburgh

Captain Gavin Hamilton returns, along with Ryan Watson and Kyle Coetzer, for Scotland's one-day international with England in Edinburgh on Saturday.

The trio are back after missing the games against the Netherlands.

Dewald Nel misses through injury and top bowler Gordon Goudie is struggling to recover from a hamstring strain.

Neil McCallum and Ross Lyons join Hamilton, Watson and Coetzer as the only players remaining from the side that faced England two years ago.

That meeting was washed out by the Edinburgh rain, with Hamilton's 60 the highlight of Scotland's 156-9 from a reduced 44 overs.

England were 10-0 when play was brought to a premature halt.

Qasim Sheikh drops out of the squad after the ODI loss in Rotterdam.

Looking ahead to this fixture, chairman of selectors Iain Kennedy said: "The remodelling of the national squad is now taking shape and it has a good blend of youth and experience.

"With young players such as (Josh) Davey, Goudie, (Preston) Mommsen, (Richie) Berrington and (Matthew) Parker all under 23 and starting out their careers, it is pleasing that we have some really experienced players such as Hamilton, Watson, (Douglas) Lockhart and McCallum to support them as they develop.

"The challenge can't get any harder than playing the T20 world champions, but we are confident we can compete against them."

The visitors bring a strong squad north of the border before embarking on a five-match series against Australia.

Of the 13-man England pool, only Ian Bell and captain Andrew Strauss were missing from England's World Twenty20 Cup-winning squad.

Scotland squad to face England: G Hamilton (captain), G Drummond (vice-captain), R Berrington, K Coetzer, J Davey, G Goudie, M Haq, R Lyons, D Lockhart, N McCallum, G Maiden, P Mommsen, M Parker, R Watson.
