Scotland news

Scotland’s thrilling six-run win over the visiting England side earlier this year has earned the team an award, apart from a lifetime of special memories.

Kyle Coetzer’s side picked up the gong for ‘Inspirational Performance’ at the Scottish Sports Awards that were presented on Thursday, 6 December.

Back in June in Edinburgh, Scotland, ranked No.13 on the MRF Tyres ICC Men's ODI Team Rankings, beat the No.1-ranked England, sending a packed crowd into raptures.

Calum MacLeod’s unbeaten 140 from 94 balls set up a total of 371/5. England were then bowled out for 365, with Mark Watt picking up 3/55 and Safyaan Sharif getting the final wicket.

The Sunday Mail and Sport Scotland Scottish Sports Awards are in the 12th edition and recognise excellence in Scottish sports.
