Scotland's cricketers put Auld Enemy to the sword

Joe Butler

The Grange Cricket Club was the stage for one of the great one-day worldwide matches, and results, on Sunday 10 June as Scotland first put up a mammoth 371/5 and then held on to beat England by six runs. 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.

The No. 13 side, Scotland, coming off heartbreak at the World Cup qualifiers produced a world-class performance to defeat the top-ranked England in a nail-bitter at Edinburgh on Sunday.

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. "These are the opportunities we have to take as a Scottish team". It would be nice to play a few more games like this.

"I'm really confident, feel like I'm bowling quite nicely especially with the white ball", he said.

'We're delighted to be working with Cricket Scotland and to have Calum, Safyaan and Grant on board for our Vitality Blast campaign, ' said Derbyshire cricket advisor Kim Barnett.

It was the highest score in Scotland's ODI career, and the highest total England have ever had to chase, but Johnny Bairstow soon had the Scottish fans anxious. It was just an incredible effort from the lads, they've just proven once again that they are capable of playing at this standard, and they did really well throughout the innings. "I come in at the end a lot in Big Bash games and try and finish the job". But as long as I give 100 per cent, my mindset is right and I know I've made the right decision with no regrets then I'm happy with that.

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. "Full credit to Scotland, they are a very unsafe side", said Morgan.

"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.

"I'm not hugely disappointed, it was a good competitive game which was all we could have asked for". We didn't. It wasn't good enough to win and we were punished for it. Stanlake impressed against Middlesex in his one run-out before the series, troubling batsmen with his bounce and pace.
