Scotland Women's Cricket Makes History: Megan McColl

Scotland women wrote cricket history in May this year with a spectacular win over Ireland, to secure their place in their maiden T20 cricket World Cup. It was a day filled with emotion, and opening batter Megan McColl was at the centre of proceedings with her magnificent half a century by the 15th over. 

Joining me on the podcast, Megan McColl relives the innings by sharing with us what was in her head during her batting spell. How her batting partner Saskia helped her bounce ideas around out in the middle. We also explore the broader landscape of women’s cricket in Scotland, discussing the challenges the sport faces and whether the historic World Cup qualification has sparked changes at higher levels. Megan opens up about her performances and, her aspirations to be in the starting eleven for the World Cup later this year.

Additionally, we’ll delve into the self-belief that united the Scottish team during the qualifiers and the mental barriers that cricketers must overcome to forge successful careers. Megan gives us insight into the rest of the season and how the players manage the delicate balance of working and representing their country on the cricket field. Join us as we reflect on the inspiring journey through one of the most momentous achievements in women’s cricket in Scotland.
