Strathdale-Maristians paceman Chris Sole will represent Scotland at next month's ICC Twenty20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman.
The speedster was named in Scotland's 17-man squad for the tournament, which starts on October 17.
Sole has spent the past two Australian summers with the Suns in the Bendigo District Cricket Association where he's taken 50 first XI wickets, with a career best of 8-22.
"We're thrilled for him,'' Suns' first XI skipper Cam Taylor said of Sole.
"We know how hard he works to get the best out of his cricket.
"We're jumping on Scotland as our second team for the World Cup."
Sole, who has spent the past six months back in Scotland to enhance his prospects of making the squad, will return to the Suns' line-up at the completion of the T20 World Cup.
"(Under current circumstances) he's probably limited to how much he can hang around after the World Cup,'' Taylor said.
"Once it's finished the intention is that he'll pretty much come straight back.
"He'll miss some of the first half of the season, but we're pretty happy to have a player unavailable because of international commitments."
Scotland's three group matches are against Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea and Oman.
The top two teams from that pool advance to the Super12 section of the tournament, which is where the world's top-ranked countries start their campaign.
The Super12 section concludes on Tuesday, November 9.
Sole has played four T20 internationals and 11 one-day internationals for Scotland.
The next step in his T20 World Cup preparation is a three-match series against Zimbabwe in Edinburgh on September 15, 17 and 19.
Sole will also be part of the Scotland squad which travels to Oman later this month for the 50-over CWCL2 matches where Scotland will play Oman and Papua New Guinea as part of the qualification process for the 2023 Cricket World Cup.
"This squad has worked hard over a long period of time now and deserves the opportunity to show the world what we are about,'' Scotland coach Shane Burger said.
"This is an experienced, versatile and exciting group of players and we're looking forward to embracing the challenges ahead as a team."
