“I am resigning from my role as chair and director of Cricket Scotland Limited with immediate effect. I vehemently object to how sports Scotland is managing the sport. The letter of resignation stated, “I feel their top goal is to appease the demands of a lobby organization and a few people affiliated with them, even if doing so will have a detrimental effect on the larger sport and community.

“It would be sad to leave this position. I honestly worked hard with the team to improve the sport because I care about it, the letter continued.
