Former Scotland captain Con De Lange dies aged 38

Scotland's former national cricket team captain Con De Lange passed away at the age of 38 following a lengthy illness.

South Africa-born De Lange was diagnosed with a brain tumour after falling ill while away on international duty in late 2017.

"Con's death at such an early age is a tragedy," said Cricket Scotland chairman Tony Brian.

The allrounder started his career in South Africa, playing for the Knights and Free State and had two years with Northamptonshire before representing Scotland.

At the international level, De Lange captained Scotland to their first 50-over victory over an ICC full member and hit the winning runs as Scotland chased down 287 against Sri Lanka in May 2017.
