ICC have announced that Scotland’s Calum MacLeod has been voted as the 2018 Associate Player of the Year.
Calum MacLeod has had an exceptional year in Scottish colours, scoring two match-winning centuries (157 n.o vs Afghanistan in ICC World Cup Qualifiers and 140 n.o vs England in an one-off ODI), that prompted the votes to go his way from the ICC Voting Academy.
MacLeod also got opportunities in T20 leagues in England’s Vitality Blast (Derbyshire), Afghanistan’s APLT20 (Panthers) and US Open T20, following his exploits in Scottish colors.
MacLeod becomes the 2nd Scotland player to win the prestigious award after Preston Mommsen in 2014.
