Jack Jarvis is the new name in Shane Burger's squad for their tour of Nepal where they will face the hosts and Namibia.

The fixtures are the final games in Scotland's World League Two Qualifier campaign, with the Saltires having already secured qualification for the WCQ being held in Zimbabwe later this summer.

19-year-old Jarvis came through the ranks at Livingston and now plays for Grange.

“Jack is developing really nicely as a cricketer and he is probably the most improved Scottish male player in the last 12 months,” Head Coach Shane Burger told Cricket Scotland.

“He has really matured as a player and he is going to develop into a really good all-rounder. I think taking him on a trip like this will be a wonderful experience for him and will allow him to develop his skills, develop relationships with those around him and build from there.”

This will be Burger's swansong after four years at the helm, departing to take up a new role at Somerset.

“I have loved my time working with the group of core players and also bringing through younger players,” he reflected.

“On this trip I want to go out on a high and the guys will be looking to get four wins, but just as important as that for me will be seeing players like Brandon McMullen, Chris McBride and the younger ones continue to grow in confidence at this level.”

The 15-man squad head to Nepal on February 8 and return on February 23.
