Scotland will have a new captain this summer after 
Carlton all-rounder Gordon Drummond stepped down from the position.

The 33-year-old has been skipper of the national side since 2010 and, in 16 one day internationals at the helm, Drummond led his side to nine victories and reached the ­final of both the World Cricket League Division One and the Intercontinental Cup.

He was also in charge when Scotland beat Bangladesh last year to record their first win over a full member nation in an ICC fixture.

Drummond said: “It has been an unbelievable experience 
having had the opportunity to captain Scotland and the Saltires. I have given it my all and feel I have done my best to keep the squad moving forward.”

Drummond, who previously played for Watsonians, will still be available for selection.

The Saltires open their 
Yorkshire Bank 40 campaign away to Hampshire on Sunday.
