A nagging seam bowler, Alasdair Evans made his ODI debut against Canada in 2011, at the age of 20. He was born in Kent to Scottish parents, attended George Watson's College, in Edinburgh, and was involved in the Scotland set-up from U-13 level.
Evans made his first-class debut for Loughborough UCCE in 2009. Some impressive performances for Scotland in the CB40 in 2012 earned him a contract with Derbyshire, who he played for in 2012 and 2013. But, although he performed well for the Second XI, he made little impact in the first team and was released after 2013. That summer he took 6 for 30 against Kenya in an Intercontinental Cup match. After being omitted from Scotland's squad for the World Cup Qualifiers at the start of 2014, he forced his way back into the side in 2014, performing admirably in the ODIs against Ireland to secure his place in the World Cup squad. He performed encouragingly in the World Cup acclimatisation tour, and he also played for Durham Second XI in 2014.
