How social media reacted to England's defeat to Scotland

  • England Look To Maintain Top ODI Ranking

It was the highest score in Scotland's ODI career, and the highest total England have ever had to chase, but Johnny Bairstow soon had the Scottish fans anxious.

It's a different format, but one in which Scotland have a decent record: 18-23 in 45 games.

Calum MacLeod's superb unbeaten century took Scotland to a record 371 for five in their one-day worldwide against England in Edinburgh on Sunday.

Catch up with all the action from the only ODI between Scotland and England at Edinburgh. England were more like a shower in Scotland.

He will feature in Nine's coverage of the second one-day global against England on Saturday in Cardiff.

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.

England may have been missing Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes but there was a worrying lack of penetration while their bowlers were not skilful enough to contain the Scots on a surface that offered them nothing. England's top six is feared by opponents and the fact they got within six runs of their run chase against Scotland, even without Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, underlined their potency.

Plunkett, left out by Yorkshire last week from their 50-over team, may have taken two wickets but he was the most expensive while Mark Wood struggled for the pace that once set him apart and Adil Rashid too often pitched short.

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.

Additionally, the new trailer announced the Edition of Light copy, which includes a Supplicant, Healer, and three Seeds of Skill. E3 2018 marked Square Enix's return to holding a press conference at the event, as its last showcase was at E3 2015.

The 29-year-old MacLeod previously played for Warwickshire and Durham, finishing as their top scorer in Twenty20 cricket in 2014 with 358 runs at an average of 44.75, while he has spent the early part of 2018 in Hampshire's second XI.

Spinner Mark Watt was Scotland's best bowler with 3-55.

Alasdair Evans of Scotland takes the wicket of David Willy.

In total, MacLeod faced just 94 balls including 16 fours and three sixes.

However, England were undermined by a succession of soft dismissals after Bairstow holed out in the 18th over.

Top-ranked England was all out for 365 in 48.5 overs.

And to think this was meant to be a warm-up.

Series against Australia and India this summer should give England a clearer indication of how they are shaping up ahead of next year's World Cup on home soil, for which they are strong contenders.
