Scotland stun England in Edinburgh run-fest

Scotland stun England in Edinburgh run-fest

England though will not have long to absorb the lessons of that loss, with the first ODI against Australia at The Oval on Wednesday.

The No 1 ranked 50-over side were humbled in Edinburgh as Calum MacLeod hit a match-winning 140 not out.

Fresh from a scintillating stint in the Indian Premier League, an in-form Buttler rewarded Smith's judgement with a man-of-the-match display at Headingley as England drew the two-Test series against Pakistan.

That's what they will go out and try to achieve against the top team in the world, with the playing XI for the England game all available to choose from.

Scotland missed out on a 2019 World Cup berth when rain ruined their game against Windies earlier this year in the qualifiers in Zimbabwe.

When International Cricket Council (ICC) announced its decision to shrink ICC Cricket World Cup from a 14-team tournament to 10-team, they had faced heavy criticism for the same. This should be a catalyst for more games.

The arrangement could see further opportunities for cricketers north of the border to make their way into English domestic cricket at Derby.

The first-ever meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader was to kick off at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a handshake, an image sure to be devoured from Washington to Pyongyang and beyond.

"We've had a professional relationship with Dave for five years now [and] we've always found him to be a pretty normal and humble bloke", Nine's Wide World of Sports quoted Malone as saying in the announcement.

"It was a really interesting game yesterday, good for us that England lost that game, great for Scotland as a country, and as a cricketing nation it's really exciting for them", Ashton Agar said. Something as a cricket team we have really looked at last 18 months is taking those key moments in games and not being plucky Scottish losers.

"The way we played, we didn't deserve to win it". Eoin Morgan might also look at Joe Root as an option against the Australians who have a fair amount of left-handed batsmen in their line-up.

"A one-off game like this, to bring your best game is very hard to do, they played well and deserved the result", said Morgan.

"We didn't do enough to win, if we had won it would have been a bonus given the position we got ourselves in".

"We might have scraped past them and won, but there were still quite a few mistakes made that we need to rectify and learn from ahead of the Australia series".

It did not like it would be for Scotland when Moeen and Plunkett were adding 71 for the eighth wicket but Moeen senselessly threw it away before Rashid then ran himself out. It's good to play a high-scoring game under pressure and we can take a lot out of it.
