Cricket World Player of the Week - George Munsey

 

Although Scotland were edged out by Ireland in the T20I tri-series final by a whisker, George Munsey ensured that the Scottish flag flew high throughout the series

Scotland opener George Munsey ended as the highest run-scorer of the Ireland tri-series with 194 runs from four innings at an average of almost 65 and an explosive strike rate of 185+.

It was in the very first match that he set the tone for Scotland with an unbeaten 127-run knock against Netherlands which helped the side bag the game by a comprehensive margin of 58 runs and start the series on a winning note.

Munsey then contributed 34 and 27 against Ireland and Netherlands respectively which are substantial contributions in the T20 format. Scotland lost their game against Ireland by four wickets while beating Netherlands by six wickets for the second time in the tournament.

At 26 years of age, Munsey has a lot of time left in his career and the fact that he opens the batting for Scotland will give him more and more opportunities to smash batting records in the future.
