Gordon Drummond Bio

Gordon David Drummond is a Scottish cricket player who hails from Perthshire. Born into a cricket-loving family, Gordon began his cricketing journey at Meigle Cricket Club, following in the footsteps of his father.

Drummond is known for his versatile skills as a bowling all-rounder. He impresses with his bustling medium pace and contributes with his useful lower-order batting. It was in July 2007 that he made his debut for Scotland in a thrilling one-day international match against West Indies. Although his contribution in that game was minimal, it marked the beginning of his international career.

Over the years, Drummond has established himself as a crucial member of the national side. Just two years after his debut, he was handed the captaincy of the Scotland team for the first time during an Intercontinental Cup clash against Canada at Aberdeen. It turned out to be a memorable experience for Drummond as he displayed his resilience and determination.

In the first innings of the match, Drummond came to the crease when Scotland was struggling at 102 for 8. However, he turned the tide with a crucial knock of 52 runs, lifting the team’s score to 185. Adding to his heroics with the bat, he also picked up two wickets in Canada’s first innings. In the second innings, Drummond again played a vital role, scoring 34 runs when Scotland found themselves in trouble at 99 for 7. His efforts steered the team to a 29-run victory, showcasing his ability to perform under pressure.

One of Drummond’s most noteworthy performances came against Canada in a limited-overs match. Leading from the front, he took the new ball and took an impressive 4 for 41, helping Scotland level a two-match series. As a result of his outstanding performance, he was appointed as the captain of the team during subsequent tournaments such as the World Twenty20 Qualifiers in Abu Dhabi in early 2010.

Though Drummond temporarily stepped down from the captaincy after this event, he was appointed as the leader once again before the World Cricket League Division One tournament in July 2010. He fulfilled the role of captain until 2013, displaying his leadership qualities and commitment to the team.

Throughout his career, Drummond’s contributions to Scottish cricket have been significant. He has shown his ability to perform with both bat and ball, and his dedication to the game has been evident through his leadership roles. With his bustling medium pace and useful lower-order batting, Drummond continues to make a lasting impact on Scottish cricket.
