Scotland stuns top-ranked England in huge cricket shock


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.

England were all out for 365 after Scotland made 371 for five, their highest total in a one-day worldwide.

Despite making a mammoth 371 for five, thanks mainly to Calum MacLeod's brilliant 140 not out, Scotland were in danger of defeat as England's Jonny Bairstow took advantage of a good pitch and short boundaries at the Grange to make 105.

Moeen picked out long-on and Adil Rashid was needlessly run out at the start of the 49th over, before Safyaan Sharif trapped Mark Wood lbw with a superb, inswinging yorker to end England's innings on 365.

The world's top-ranked ODI team lost by six runs after just failing to pull off what would have been the second highest one-day global run chase.

"I don't think we were far away, we go to a ground now that we know really well in The Oval, and we'll be up for the challenge". 'We were miles off where we expect to be and didn't do enough.

The International Cricket Council had already angered Scotland and many of their fellow non-Test nations by cutting the number of teams at next year's World Cup from 14 to 10.

MacLeod, who has scored 2,342 runs in 85 games for Scotland, has previously played for Warwickshire and Durham.

"We've had a professional relationship with Dave for five years now we've always found him to be a pretty normal and humble bloke - he just wants to atone for his mistakes and move on".
