Scotland stun England in Edinburgh run-fest

In the 12 months leading up to the 2019 WC England will play 24 ODIs to achieve that ruthlessness needed to win the event

In the 12 months leading up to the 2019 WC England will play 24 ODIs to achieve that ruthlessness needed to win the event

Calum MacLeod's superb 140 not out powered non-Test nation Scotland to a record 371 for five against an England side who are top of the one-day worldwide rankings.

"I hit it nicely", said MacLeod, who plays club cricket for Bexley in England. It was a lovely feeling and nice to do it in a crowd this big.

Matthew Cross (48) and Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer (58) got the hosts off to a solid start with a century stand for the first wicket.

Though Moeen Ali and Liam Plunkett hit some lusty blows to take England closer to the finish line, it was just not enough as the Scotland bowlers stuck to their plan to scrape out a memorable victory over the top-ranked ODI side.

The 29-year-old MacLeod went to a hundred off just 70 balls, his seventh at this level but his first against an active Test nation and the first by any Scotland batsman against England.

Asked if Scotland had sent a message to the ICC with this win, Sharif replied: "I'm not going to say anything - they've seen it all today".

It looked as if England would win while Jonny Bairstow was at the crease.

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.

Test skipper Joe Root was carelessly run out and England then lost Morgan and Alex Hales off successive deliveries to be 245 for five.

"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.
