  • Pakistan to face Scotland in first T20 in Edinburgh

Eoin Morgan is confident England can learn the lessons of their shock six-run loss to Scotland in Edinburgh on Sunday in time for a one-day worldwide series against Australia. It's going to be a couple of quality games, we don't expect them to come here and not try to knock us all over the place.

"It was a really interesting game yesterday, good for us that England lost that game, great for Scotland as a country, and as a cricketing nation, it's really exciting for them", Ashton Agar told reporters on Monday.

Australia will face their first worldwide action since March's shameful ball- doctoring incident when taking on England at The Oval on Wednesday. I didn't watch it as closely as I could have.

'At the end, England didn't really finish the job.

More pertinently, the Australian side has since been turned upside down by a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa - with Steven Smith and David Warner since cast aside after bans from Cricket Australia. They're a really risky side, though, and you can't ever take a side like that lightly.

The opener will join the commentary team for the second ODI in Cardiff on Saturday. "Personally I think it's a great thing for him to be back around cricket", said Agar of Warner's new role.

Multiple nuclear missle sites will also feature inside the map, letting players "do whatever [you] want with them", Howard said. One of the missions teased involves collecting codes for a nuclear missile, which can then be fired at anything on the map.


Morgan added: "It's no good losing the lesson and the game, you've got to take something from it".

The world's top-ranked ODI team, who play the first of five matches against the Aussies at the Oval in London on Wednesday, were beaten by the Scots by six runs for the very first time in Edinburgh on Sunday.

"I can't talk about it any more to be honest, we've talked about what's acceptable from our team and what people are saying from outside our team doesn't really matter", Paine said.

First Scotland impressed the cricketing world with their performance in Zimbabwe at the qualifiers, where they missed out of a successful result after a controversial Duckworth-Lewis loss to the West Indies in March, and on Sunday, once again they proved they have the potential to produce competitive cricket.

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first worldwide cricket win over England was a "massive statement". "These days don't come around too often, we have to enjoy the occasion. We need to bring our A-game and be ready to go".
