Cricket Scotland last night collected the Sporting Moment of the Year Award at the Team Scotland Awards night at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
The moment was for Scotland’s memorable victory against the world’s number one ranked side, England at the Grange on 10 June and was gracefully accepted by captain Kyle Coetzer.
With a host of sporting stars, including medalists from the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and recent European Championships in attendance, the evening was an inspirational celebration of their outstanding achievements, as well as the success of individuals, schools, clubs and teams across the whole of Scottish sport.
The award was welcomed by rapturous applause on the evening after Calum MacLeod’s blistering unbeaten 140* and Safyann Sharif’s in-swinging yorker to Mark Wood captured the hearts of the nation.

Paul Bush OBE, Chair of Commonwealth Games Scotland, said: “Tonight has been a fantastic celebration of what has been and continues to be a golden year for Scottish sport, with our athletes excelling across a packed schedule of championship events.
“A huge thank you to our partners and sponsors, whose support has made this fantastic event possible and enables us to properly recognise the achievements of the individuals, teams and organisations that help to put Scotland on the sporting map.
Scottish Rugby picked up Team of the Year, while Duncan Scott did the double, picking up Scottish Sportsperson of the Year and Male Athlete of the Year while athlete Laura Muir collected the female equivalent.
Cricket Scotland had also been short-listed for National Governing Body of the Year on the evening but was pipped by Scottish Cycling for the accolade.
"We're going to beat England one day, why can't it be now?"
