Preston Mommsen, the Mazars Grange skipper, has been recalled to the Scotland set-up six months after he announced he was retiring from international cricket.

Back in late November it came as a shock to many when the 29-year-old stepped down as national captain and stopped playing cricket at that level.

However, he has been in fine form for Grange this summer so far and has thrown his hat back into the ring with Scotland. And head coach Grant Bradburn has selected him for the two World Cricket League matches with Namibia on June 11 and 13 at his home ground in Stockbridge. So far this season he has scored 241 league runs for Grange in the CSL Eastern Premiership, including a superb 156 not out against his old club Carlton.

Before the two one day matches in the Capital, Scotland play the same opponents in a four day Intercontinental Cup clash in Ayr starting on Tuesday.

Mommsen is not included in the squad for that one, but Carlton captain Ali Evans, Heriot’s Mark Watt, Watsonians George Munsey are along with ex-Grange man Chris Sole.

They are all also part of the squad for the two one dayers.

Intercontinental Cup squad against Namibia: Kyle Coetzer (captain), Con de Lange (vice-captain), Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Alasdair Evans, Safyaan Sharif, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, Mark Watt, George Munsey, Craig Wallace, Chris Sole, Stuart Whittingham.
