Minnows Scotland go wild as they seal first ODI victory over England

Scottish cricket celebrates its greatest day after shock defeat of world number one ranked England

"I would like to extend my thanks to Grant and Cricket Scotland for supporting this new partnership, and we hope it can help all parties".

England captain Eoin Morgan put on a courageous face saying the shock reversal will act as flawless preparation for the series. They will also be without their first choice pace battery of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins.

Despite their lofty status, England go into the game after a shock six-run defeat to Scotland in Edinburgh and will be without talismanic all-rounder Ben Stokes and key bowler Chris Woakes. Langer was quickly installed as Darren Lehmann's replacement, while Paine has assumed responsibility nearly by default after his mature displays in South Africa, but there are numerous questions over the team they will field, not least because of the injury-enforced absence of their three senior bowlers, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. They scored as much in the last seven overs, as the team did in the first 13 as Pakistan became the first side to post five successive 180-plus scores in T20Is.

Bairstow set a record by becoming the first England batsman to make three ODI centuries in successive innings but it was not enough to deny the Scots.

Dan Carter: England should stick with Eddie Jones' plan
A bloke said something, so I asked him where I can get a nice bottle of Pinotage and we can have a chat. When asked exactly what he had said, the England coach replied: "That's not for me to share with you".


Travis Head and Aaron Finch could switch places in the batting order.

He is due back at New Road in early July after the completion of the ODI Series against England and a mini T20 Series in Zimbabwe.

First Scotland impressed the cricketing world with their performance in Zimbabwe at the qualifiers, where they missed out of a successful result after a controversial Duckworth-Lewis loss to the West Indies in March, and on Sunday, once again they proved they have the potential to produce competitive cricket.

But in reply, England fell shorts of six runs despite Jonny Bairstow's 105 runs off just 58 balls with 6 sixes, and were all out for 365 runs in 48.5 overs.

Gernot Rohr admits Croatia are better than Super Eagles
The Super Eagles even rock a floral motif on the team's travel tracksuit, something that has caught the eye of opposition players. The Eagles shirts, produced by American kit makers Nike, sold out minutes after it hit the shelves across the world.


Royal London, proud sponsors of one-day cricket, is celebrating unconventional greatness in the game by championing the independent spirit of players and fans.

England checked their progress as leg-spinner Adil Rashid had Coetzer caught behind with wicket-keeper Sam Billings, behind the stumps in place of the rested Jos Buttler, also catching Cross off fast bowler Liam Plunkett.

Australia might have found their best XI by now after emerging victorious in a couple of warm-up matches.
