McBride confident as Scots eye World Cup spot

ANNANDALE cricketer Chris McBride is currently on Scotland duty as the team prepare to start their World Cup Qualifier tournament in Zimbabwe with a match against Ireland next Wednesday.

The former Carrutherstown Primary pupil said: “The tour is going to be pretty full on. The appeal of playing in a world event, with it being my first ever qualifier, is very exciting.”

The 23-year-old made his Scotland debut last year, he added: “I dreamt of getting into the national team when I was a young boy and I remember going to watch my brother play for Scotland U19s in Belfast, so that was when I really wanted to get involved.

“There was a lot of pride for that debut, especially for Dumfries, my home cricket club. I always get great support from them.”

Scotland start in a five-team group which includes Sri Lanka.
