A sell-out crowd is expected at Mannofield and captain Kyle Coetzer is one of several locals that make up a third of the squad, which also includes Somerset's Josh Davey for the first time since last year's ODI with Pakistan.

Interim coach Craig Wright said: "The match against England is a wonderful opportunity for us to continue the progress which the team made in New Zealand earlier this year.

"The challenge for us regardless of the opposition is to continue to display the strong, positive mentality which was the cornerstone of our recent success.

"With the World Cup to look forward to in under a year, this game will be a great chance for us to test ourselves at the type of level we want to be successful at moving forward. I hope the occasion is a memorable one for Scottish cricket."

Scotland squad to face England in Aberdeen on May 9: Kyle Coetzer (Captain), Freddie Coleman, Matthew Cross, Josh Davey, Alasdair Evans, Majid Haq, Michael Leask, Matt Machan, Calum MacLeod, Preston Mommsen, Safyaan Sharif, Rob Taylor, Iain Wardlaw.
