Former VKB Knights captain, Con de Lange
Condolences are pouring in for the friends and family of former VKB Knights captain, Con de Lange, who has passed away during the early hours of Easter Friday.


The 38-year-old all-rounder passed away after a battle with a brain tumor. His fans, sporting organisations and many other social media users have taken to Twitter and Facebook to send their condolences to his loved ones. 

He is described by many as an extremely talented cricketer, a hero, a family man and an all-round lovely person. The Cape Town born De Lange played 13 one-day internationals and eight T20 matches for Scotland between 2015 and 2017 and spent two seasons with Northamptonshire in 2012 and 2013. 

He is famously remembered for his five-wicket haul in a victory over Zimbabwe in June 2017. He also faced the likes of Afghanistan, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea. 

His passing comes after Cricket Scotland last year announced that he was being treated for a brain tumor.
