Cricket Scotland has announced that Kari Carswell is to step down from her coaching role with the national side after 5 years at the helm.
Carswell has recently combined the roles of head of women’s cricket, head coach and senior pro, making her basically Mark Robinson, Clare Connor and Jenny Gunn all rolled into one.
Scotland had a mixed year in 2015. They reached the semi-finals of the World T20 Qualifiers, coming within one game of qualification for the tournament-proper; but in the Women’s County Championship they were relegated from Division 2 with just one win in the 50-over competition.
Carswell will now focus on her administrative role, promoting and growing the women’s game north of the border; but has also said that she intends to continue as a player.
