Scotland stuns top-ranked England in huge cricket shock

  • Scotland v England- One Day International

Hussain believes England - the No 1 ranked side in the world - have never had a better chance to win the tournament, but warns that they must stay "ahead of the curve" with their one-day cricket, and that the bowling reserves are perhaps a cause for concern.

Calum Macleod scored an unbeaten 140 off just 94 balls as Scotland registered their highest score in ODIs, ending at 371/5 in their 50 overs after being put into bat by England.Macleod's 140* was his 4th highest ODI score, earlier he has registered scores of 175 (vs Canada), 157* (vs Afghanistan) and 154 (vs Papua New Guinea).

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.

However, they suffered a middle-order collapse and the match ended with seven balls remaining when Scotland paceman Saf Sharif had England No 11 Mark Wood plumb leg before to seal a famous victory.

Defeat raised fresh questions about England's ability to win one-off, winner-takes-all fixtures following last year's Champions Trophy semi-final loss to Pakistan.

"Everyone just wants to listen to them talk and we can't get enough of them".

"The way we played, we didn't deserve to win it".

'There were still quite a few mistakes we need to rectify ahead of the Australia series (starting on Wednesday). "We want to be courageous enough to walk through the door and win games". That is the bigger shop window rather than personal side of it. It does not take away what happened in Zimbabwe and everyone's feelings about the ten-team World Cup but this was a special day'.

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.
