Profile

A change in eligibility rules meant that Matt Machan, who has a Scottish mother, qualified to play for Scotland in 2012. He promptly proved his worth by scoring a century against Kenya in only his fourth ODI. With powerful batting at number three and useful offspin, Machan played an important part in Scotland's run of seven consecutive wins in the World Cup Qualifiers in New Zealand at the start of 2014, securing their ticket to the 2015 World Cup. While it was not an official ODI, Machan's 83, from 86 balls, against a powerful New Zealand XI in October 2014 provided further notice of his ball-striking talent.
