Kyle Coetzer is back in the Scotland squad for next month's World Twenty20 qualifiers in the United Arab Emirates.

The Scotland captain has been named in the 15-man squad after recovering from a wrist injury which kept him out of the recent games against Ireland.

The squad includes Scotland's leading one-day international wicket-taker Majid Haq but Arbroath all-rounder Calvin Burnett is missing because of work commitments.

Coetzer said: "I'm really excited about the challenges that lie ahead. It's a significant tournament and its crunch time now.

"This is an opportunity to show the character of this squad.

"Having the likes of Paul Collingwood and Craig Wright joining our coaching team is only going to add to the experience we have at our disposal.

"Paul has had a successful season at Durham, and being an Ashes and T20 World Cup winner he will bring that unique knowledge, and with Craig being a former Scotland captain, it's an exciting time.

"We've got the quality in the squad, there is no doubt about that, we just have to make sure that we show our potential."

Scotland preparations include a 12-day tour to Sri Lanka before two warm-up games against the United States and Namibia in Dubai. They begin their qualification campaign against Bermuda on November 15.
