Drummond is confirmed as new skipper
Drummond will take formal charge for the first time in this week's two games against the touring India A side at Citylets Titwood tomorrow and Friday.
Chairman of selectors Iain Kennedy said: "We are very grateful to Gavin Hamilton for all his efforts as our captain over the last year. He took over at a difficult time and has been instrumental in the change process we are undertaking in the national squad. He agreed to take on the role whilst we identified a long-term successor.
"Gordon has done a great job whilst deputising for Gavin, and we are delighted he has accepted the invitation to become Scotland captain. He is a natural leader, has a good cricketing brain and has led from the front in his games as captain to date."
Scotland's preparations for tomorrow's match suffered a blow when Majid Haq pulled a calf muscle, and has been forced to withdraw from both games this week. A replacement will be announced today.
