Former Scotland cricketer Con de Lange dies

Scottish cricket was in mourning on Friday following the death of former national team captain Con De Lange at the age of 38 following a lengthy battle with a brain tumor. His condition was first identified in the early months of 2018 but the news was not made public until October.

The South Africa-born all-rounder played 13 one-day internationals and eight T20Is for Scotland after making his debut in 2015. Lange took 24 wickets in across all formats, with his best performance being the 5/60 in ODI match against Zimbabwe in Edinburgh in June 2017.

Cricketers from around the world sent words of support to De Lange's family and friends via social media in the immediate hours after his death was announced. Con de Lange’s last appearance for Scotland came in 2017, in an ODI series against Papua New Guinea in the UAE, when he was also the vice-captain of the squad.
