BRAD Currie earned his place in the Scottish record books with his bowling display against Ireland at the weekend.

Former Poole Grammar School student Currie played a starring role as Scotland signed off their T20 World Cup qualifying campaign with a win over Ireland.

Both the Irish and the Scots had already secured their place in next summer’s tournament heading into the final game of the group.

Catching another two balls, Currie’s fielding display was desperately needed for the Scots as Ireland came agonisingly close to their target of 213, falling just short at 205-9.

Currie has been taking big wicket hauls for some time now.

His debut at Lord’s last July ended up with him taking six for Sussex in the LV= Insurance Championship, whilst this summer he showed his pedigree by taking nine for Bashley in the ECB Southern Premier League.

Currie’s record of 5-13 is a record for a Scotland’s men bowler in the T20 format, with the Sussex left-arm seamer stating that the haul was beyond his wildest dreams.

He told Cricket Scotland’s website: “I didn’t even dream about that (taking so many wickets), but it was superb.

“I tried to keep it quite simple with lots of slower balls.

“I have loved being part of the group over the last couple of weeks and to play a batch of games on home turf and win the tournament, well it is a great feeling.”
