Wright ends Scotland association

Craig Wright’s 19-year association with Scotland will end after the ICC World Twenty20 in India.

A former player, captain, development officer, marketing manager, performance development manager and coach during his time with Scotland, the 41-year-old has opted to seek a new challenge.

Having made his international debut in 1997, Wright became Scotland’s most capped player and captained the side a record 107 times.

Wright started his off-the-field roles in 1998 and, after leading Scotland Under-19s to consecutive World Cups, he became the first man to win the ICC Trophy as both captain and coach when acting as caretaker head coach for the senior side’s 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign in New Zealand. 

Wright said “After much thought and consideration I have decided to leave my position with Cricket Scotland following the World T20 in India.  

“I feel it is the right time for me to take on some new challenges and explore other interests. 

“Despite being a football loving boy from the West of Scotland, Scottish Cricket has been my passion since the first time I got the opportunity to play the sport as a 13-year-old, and has been a massive part of my life since then.

“I have been incredibly fortunate to have had some wonderful experiences in the sport as a player and coach during a time where cricket at associate level developed beyond recognition.”
