Dumfries Cricket Club’s Niall Alexander is jetting out with Scotland U19s this week for a fortnight’s training camp in Sri Lanka.

The quick bowler, who played for Scotland U17s last season, is selected in the U19 squad for their tour which will involve playing six matches in and around Colombo and well as the chance for warm weather pre-season training.

The Scotland squad’s coach Craig Wright says that this is “a valuable learning opportunity for Niall” and also provides the opportunity to continue the technical aspects worked on during the winter indoor training sessions.

Niall himself is looking forward to the trip – “it should be a great experience for me and a big opportunity”.
