Scotland beat England for the first time

With the duo of Woakes and Stokes set to miss the first part of the series against Australia, England will hope their bowlers find their mojo back and give more support to Adil Rashid who was the pick of the bowlers the last time England toured Down Under for ODIs earlier this year.

"As a Scotland team we have looked at the way Afghanistan and Ireland have progressed and that has been on the back of beating full member teams".

I saw Justin Langer has said that Australia will carry on sledging but, to be honest, it is something that goes on with every country.

Nasser Hussain and David Lloyd joined Ian Ward to preview England's five-match ODI series against an Australia side attempting to alter its public image following the ball-tampering scandal.

For Scotland, the disappointment of missing out on a spot in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 couldn't have been papered over by the win over England, but as Calum MacLeod, their star of the win with a 94-ball 140*, said, "this was a special day; it is up to us now to build on it".

He said they had drawn additional inspiration from the involvement in their camp ahead of the match of Duncan Hodge, hero of the Scotland rugby team's Calcutta Cup win in 2000 when he scored all 19 of his side's win who is also a fine cricketer.

Even though Bairstow was to depart for 105 England were still cruising when they reached 220 for two in the 27th over but a catalogue of errors sparked by the needless run out of Joe Root was to prove England's demise. That is the bigger shop window rather than personal side of it. We've got to take every game as it comes, they'll all be tough games and we've got to be prepared for that. "When we get the opportunities that we're not going to get over the next few years to perform against the top-ranked teams, it's vital that we come with the energy and the passion and the drive that we had today to put a performance in that is worthy of not only Scottish cricket, but Associate cricket".

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.

"It was a really interesting game yesterday".

At the other end of the camp, Eoin Morgan, the England skipper, remained positive despite the loss.

"It's a hugely exciting summer", said Buttler, who is expected to return to the fold for Wednesday's first ODI at The Oval after being rested for Sunday's shock defeat Scotland in Edinburgh. It was good for us that England lost that game because you always like to start things off with a win. "We want to be courageous enough to walk through the door and win games".
