Kyle Coetzer: Scotland skipper named ICC associate player of year
Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer says it is a "huge shock" to be named associate player of the year by the International Cricket Council.
The 35-year-old helped Scotland to qualification for this year's T20 World Cup and was the leading associate batsman in one-day internationals in 2019, averaging 48.88.
He succeeds Scotland team-mate Calum MacLeod as the best player from a non-Test-playing team.
"It is a huge honour," Coetzer said.
"It was a huge shock, I certainly did not expect it, which makes it even more special. A very special mention needs to go out to the players who support me on the field every day."
England all-rounder Ben Stokes was named as the ICC's player of the year.
