Scotland stun England in Edinburgh run-fest

Mark Wood

Despite making a mammoth 371 for five, thanks mainly to Calum MacLeod's brilliant 140 not out, Scotland were in danger of defeat as England's Jonny Bairstow took advantage of a good pitch and short boundaries at the Grange to make 105.

The hosts" Calum MacLeod said: "To beat a full England side is a massive statement from Scottish cricket.

However, MacLeod was quick to offer credit to coach Grant Bradburn and captain Kyle Coetzer for the leadership they have offered in freeing up the players to perform as they did in securing a six run win when Safyaan Sharid trapped England's last man Mark Wood LBW off the penultimate ball of the penultimate over. "So for him to be back around the game he loves is only good".

The victory came in Scotland's first game since the associate nation was denied a place in next year's World Cup after the decision was made to cut down the number of participating countries from 14 to 10.

"We didn't play anywhere near to our best", said skipper Eoin Morgan.

Ex Raptors Coach Dwane Casey Lands New Coaching Job
Having spent many hours with Dwane over the last few weeks, I'm confident he is the right person to get us to the next level. Some Detroit Pistons fans have been very critical of Tom Gores for taking so long to find a head coach and general manager.

Scotland's first win in global cricket over England came in their first match since they were cruelly denied a place at next year's World Cup after a poor umpiring decision and rain saw them miss out in their final qualifier against the West Indies in Harare in March.

"We've had a professional relationship with Dave for five years now we've always found him to be a pretty normal and humble bloke - he just wants to atone for his mistakes and move on". "We want to be fearless enough to walk through the door and win games".

However, Agar, who'll play only his fifth ODI in Australian colours in the series opener at The Oval on Wednesday, said he's pleased the controversial opener is in the right head space again following the huge fall-out from the incident in Johannesburg in March.

"We were miles off where we expect to be and didn't do enough to win", he said.

"If ICC and other worldwide teams look at this game they will see we are not an add on".
