Calum MacLeod celebrates his century in opposition to England

England suffered ODI embarrassment in Edinburgh as Scotland recorded their most famed win with a dramatic six-run triumph at The Grange.

A high-scoring contest went right down to the twine, with the hosts prevailing in the penultimate over to spark jubilant scenes and a pitch invasion.

Calum MacLeod’s elegant, unbeaten 140 – along with sturdy contributions from Matthew Cross (48), skipper Kyle Coetzer (58) and George Munsey (55) – propelled Scotland to a mammoth overall of 371-Five, with ease their very best in ODIs.

MacLeod – his nation’s first centurion in opposition to England – timed the ball beautifully in a powerful 94-ball innings, however he was once a long way from the one hero for a group who is not going to compete in the following Cricket World Cup after a debatable relief in the choice of competing countries.

Eoin Morgan’s males are the top-ranked aspect in this layout and, on a small floor with a flat pitch, Scotland’s ranking didn’t glance remotely protected as Jonny Bairstow thundered his strategy to 105 from 59 balls – turning into the primary England batsman to check in loads in 3 successive ODIs.

However, England have been undermined by way of a succession of sentimental dismissals after Bairstow holed out in the 18th over.

From 276-7, the guests threatened to get out of hassle courtesy of Moeen Ali (46) and Liam Plunkett (47 no longer out), however there was once to be some other twist in the story.

Moeen picked out long-on and Adil Rashid was once needlessly run out at the beginning of the 49th over, ahead of Safyaan Sharif trapped Mark Wood lbw with a very good, inswinging yorker to finish England’s innings on 365.

Defeat for England was once harsh on Bairstow, who had sped up in devastating model halfway thru his boundary-laden knock. All 5 of his ODI loads have come in the closing 9 months.

Next up for England is a five-match ODI sequence in opposition to Australia, beginning at The Oval on Wednesday, whilst Scotland can have fun an afternoon to keep in mind.
