Ranked England stunned by Scotland in only ODI

Scotland v England- One Day International Ranked England stunned by Scotland in only ODI

Scotland shocked the cricketing world with a six-run victory over England in their one-day global in Edinburgh.

It was a brilliant performance by the Scots against an England team who are now top of the one-day worldwide rankings.

From 276-7, the visitors threatened to get out of trouble courtesy of Moeen Ali (46) and Liam Plunkett (47 not out), but there was to be another twist in the tale.

However, they suffered a middle-order collapse and the match ended with seven balls remaining when Scotland paceman Saf Sharif had England No 11 Mark Wood plumb leg before to seal a famous victory.

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first worldwide cricket win over England was a "massive statement".

"It is up to us to build on it. Hodgey said for too long Scottish sport has been about close misses and this could have been one of those days". They will have a tough task ahead of them as they need to beat a Pakistan side that not only boasts of the No.1 ranked T20I batsman in the world but also the No.2 ranked T20I bowler in Babar Azam and Shadab Khan.

As a native Irishman Eoin Morgan, the captain of the beaten side, was meanwhile well placed to assess what the result meant for the home team and acknowledged that the better side had won on the day.

"It's not the end of the world for us, it was a really good run out and good to have a practice coming into the series against Australia", he added ahead of a five-match campaign that gets underway at The Oval on Wednesday.

SCORECARD MacLeod made 140 not out as Scotland surpassed their previous record total at this level of 341 for nine against fellow non-Test nation Canada at Christchurch four years ago.

David Willey bowled his full ten overs for the first time in ODI cricket for almost two years despite Cricviz data showing he has swung the ball less on only two previous occasions in his England career.
