Kyle James Coetzer (born 14 April 1984) is a Scottish cricketer who has represented his country at all levels, captaining at Under-15, U-17 and U-19 levels including skippering in the 2004 U-19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh.

Domestic career

Coetzer played six first-class matches for Durham in the 2004 season, scoring 67 on his first class debut. Later that year he scored 133* for Scotland in the ICC Inter-Continental Cup Semi Final against Kenya. His form dropped away in 2005 and 2006, but early season form in 2007 has helped him gain his Durham place back. In the 2009 Twenty20 World Cup in England, he took "the best catch ever" according to former cricketer David Lloyd in a match against South Africa. He was also Scotland's leading run scorer in the tournament.

In 2011 he joined Northamptonshire on loan, before making the move from Durham permanent.[1] In August 2012, Coetzer signed a new two-year contract taking him through to 2014.[2] However, after only playing four first-class games in 2015, he was released at the end of the 2015 season.[3]

International career

His first game for the full Scotland team came in 2003 against Pakistan in a one-day match; he appeared in four National League matches later that season. He is a former captain for the Scotland ODI side.[4]

His first ODI century came against Afghanistan in 2011-13 ICC World Cricket League Championship, where Scotland lost to Afghanistan finally. The bad luck continued in 2015 as well, where Coetzer scored a record 156 against Bangladesh in 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup in Nelson in 2015 in a losing cause.
