Young batsman Brendon McMullen also earns a call-up and could earn his first cap during the four-week tournament Down Under.
While a trio of key players have missed out on selection during Scotland’s recent T20I series against New Zealand.
Experienced seamers Ali Evans and Gavin Maine missed the last 15, while high-class batsman Oliver Heyers is also notably absent.
Scotland team at Berrington to provide most of their runs:-
The improving Scotland side will rely heavily on Berrington to provide most of their runs, while the experienced duo Henry Munsey and Callum McLeod are also capable of scoring well.
Berrington’s experience at Scotland’s top-order will be valuable, with the 35-year-old hitting two half-centuries and contributing to the team’s best of 177 runs during last year’s event.
The right-handed batsman will need to be at his best again this year if Scotland is to progress to the Super 12 stage.
Berrington’s team will join Ireland, Zimbabwe, and West Indies in Group B of the first round.
Shane is very happy and excited to announce 15 Players:-
On the team, head coach Shane Berger said, “We are very happy and excited to announce our 15 players for the T20 World Cup. We have selected 15 who we believe will make the desired impact.
“For the players who are not going to the World Cup, we look forward to seeing them challenging for international honors in the years to come.”
Their first match will be against the Caribbean side at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart on 17 October, before taking on Ireland in Zimbabwe at the same venue later that week.
