Freddie Coleman was brought up in Edinburgh and introduced to cricket by his father. He represented Scotland at every level from U11 up and made his first-class debut for them against the UAE in Sharjah.
He impressed in the U19 World Cup of 2012, scoring 65 against New Zealand and winning a development contract.
Meanwhile Craig Wright, the Scotland performance development manager, recommended him to Warwickshire and, in 2009, Coleman was accepted into the club's academy. He also attended University at Oxford.
He scored a century in just his second first-class game - Oxford MCCU v Worcestershire at the Parks in early 2013 - and then won the Walter Lawrence Trophy for the highest score in a match between Universities or between Universities and first-class counties with an innings of 143 in a two-day game against Durham MCCU. He made his ODI debut against Kenya in June of 2013.
He pleaded guilty to ball tampering in a second XI game in 2013 and was suspended for two games. The punishment itself was suspended for two years.
Opportunities have proven scarce at Warwickshire, though his speed and athleticism in the field have seen him used heavily as a substitute fielder for both club and country. In Scotland's World Cup acclimatisation tour in October 2014, he made a sparkling 56 against a New Zealand XI to press his claims for inclusion in Scotland's final World Cup eleven.

Following their dominant start to the World Cup, India have three relatively low-pressure games to fine-tune ahead of the knockouts, and they will want to get their death-overs batting right

The sport's top event must be a high-quality affair. It's up to us to ensure that Associates get a fair chance at making the cut for it
A 40-over tournament with 18 teams, played over ten weeks, with a best-of-three final will help identify a true champion team with luck playing little part
After another blunt display, James Anderson's form at this World Cup is becoming a significant problem for England
Our sport can never hope to compete with football unless it takes an expansionist view
