Dunfermline seamer Safyaan Sharif could make his Scotland debut after the 20-year-old was named in the squad for one-day matches against Netherlands.

The Scots face the Dutch at Mannofield in Aberdeen on 28 and 29 June.

Those follow the four-day Intercontinental Cup between the two sides at the same venue from 21 June.

Durham's Kyle Coetzer makes his return for that game, with Carlton's Alasdair Evans and Uddingston's Calum MacLeod also in the Scotland squad.

The Scots lost out in the final of the 2010 Intercontinental Cup to Afghanistan.

As well as the addition of bowler Sharif, the Scots make two changes for the ODIs, with Ryan Flannigan replaced with Middlesex's Josh Davey and Gregor Maiden taking over from Simon Smith as wicketkeeper.
