IAN Stanger is coming out of retirement to make a guest appearance for Uddingston on Sunday in the club's 125th anniversary tournament the Tunnocks T20 Trophy.
Stanger, capped 122 times by Scotland, is one of three "ringers" being drafted in by the hosts along with Grange professional Warren McSkimming and Weirs bowler Mark Gilchrist.
Uddingston will play the winners of a clash between the Saltires and an Asian Select.
Saltires coach Pete Steindl, who sees the match as an important element of his preparation for the T20 World Cup qualifiers in August, has pulled rank over the Asians to include Qasim Sheikh and Sean Weeraratna in his team.
The Saltires squad is: Fraser Watts (captain); Gregor Maiden; Qasim Sheikh; Colin Smith; Neil McCallum; Richie Berrington; Sean Weeraratna; Jan Stander; Gordon Goudie; Majid Haq; Dewald Nel.
Meanwhile Uddingston skipper Ricky Bawa will change sides to lead an Asian outfit which includes former Pakistani Test batsman Mohammad Ramzan.
Bawa declared: "It should be a fantastic occasion.
"The Asian team will provide the Saltires with stiff competition and the winners are guaranteed another tough game especially with the additions to the Uddingston team.
"It will be brilliant to see Ian back in action again. He has kept himself superbly fit and I'm sure he will have lost none of his ability."
The action at Bothwell Castle Policies gets underway at 12 noon.
