Calum MacLeod hundred powers Scotland to record 371/5 vs England

Joe Butler

Despite not wanting to read too much into a defeat that would not take away England's favourites tag from the five-match series, Agar was particularly observant of England's inability to close out the game despite a good stand between Moeen Ali and Liam Plunkett.

"Personally I think it's a great thing for him to be back around cricket", said Agar of Warner's new role.

The win came in Scotland's first match since they agonisingly just missed out on qualification for the 2019 World Cup in Zimbabwe in March.

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

Even though Bairstow was to depart for 105 England were still cruising when they reached 220 for two in the 27th over but a catalogue of errors sparked by the needless run out of Joe Root was to prove England's demise. "We've created an electric atmosphere and it's something we need to do more. That is the bigger shop window rather than personal side of it", said MacLeod. It would be nice to play a few more games like this.

Hussain interviewed Langer ahead of the series - watch the first ODI live on Sky Sports Cricket on Wednesday - who told him the team "would carry on sledging, but not resort to abuse".

Mercedes needs a wake-up call, says team boss
Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen crossed the line 8.3 seconds after Vettel to claim the third spot on the podium. I think this is - we've had it in the past - a major wake up call for every single member of the team.

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

When International Cricket Council (ICC) announced its decision to shrink ICC Cricket World Cup from a 14-team tournament to 10-team, they had faced heavy criticism for the same. Something as a cricket team we have really looked at last 18 months is taking those key moments in games and not being plucky Scottish losers.

At the other end of the camp, Eoin Morgan, the England skipper, remained positive despite the loss.

'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. "To bring your best game in a one-off game like this is very hard to do but I thought they played close to their best cricket".

"We didn't do enough to win, if we had won it would have been a bonus from where we were".

Talk of "partnerships" suggests that links with Scotland have switched from Durham, stricken by financial hardship, to Derbyshire, with Bradburn adding: "It's an exciting partnership between Cricket Scotland and Derbyshire". It's good to play a high-scoring game under pressure and we can take a lot out of it.
