Matthew Cross (24) is an explosive batsman/wicket-keeper and key member of the Scottish national side. He was one of the stars of Scotland’s successful World Twenty20 qualifying campaign in 2015 striking 184 runs at 37 and had the sixth best strike-rate in the tournament.

During the 2015 calendar year, Cross finished inside the top ten leading international T20 run scorers with 206 runs at 41.20, all with a strike-rate of 177.58.  The highlight was a 34-ball 60 in the opening T20I against Ireland, before following-up with 30-ball 48. 

Cross broke into the national side in 2013, after making quite an impression whilst vice-captaining Scotland during the 2012 Under-19 World Cup. Since then, Cross has juggled cricket with his degree in Engineering at Loughborough University.

Over the next two years (2013-14), he was on the books at Nottinghamshire, and scored 47 in his only senior game, against Bangladesh A. He played across all formats for the Notts 2nd XI, albeit struggled to play more than the solitary first team fixture over his two-year stint. Cross subsequently trialled with Leicestershire and Essex during the 2015 and 2016 seasons respectively.

In 2016, Cross also played in the Two Counties Championship for Coggeshall Town. He struck 443 runs at 36.92 and given he's now based in Essex, he is considering his options locally for the 2017 season.
