Scotland v England- One Day International

Scotland's victory will send out a powerful message to the ICC, which voted to restrict the 2019 World Cup to 10 teams from the previous 14, which makes it far more hard for second-tier sides to qualify.

"I reckon it is up there", he said.

For Scotland, it was a famous win and the greatest in their history having only recently failed to qualify for next year's World Cup in controversial circumstances and it served as a reminder for Morgan's side, who are considered favourites for the tournament next year.

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first worldwide cricket win over England was a "massive statement". "We need to bring our A-game and be ready to go".

On a personal front, the series presents the 24-year-old Agar an opportunity to nail down his spot as the lead spinner of the side. This should be a catalyst for more games.


He added: "It does not take away what happened in Zimbabwe and everyone's feelings about the 10-team World Cup but this was a special day".

The punishment means he can not hold any leadership position in the team for the rest of his career, but does allow him to play in overseas domestic leagues and Australian Premier Cricket - senior inter-club or district cricket competitions in each of Australia's states and territories.

That's what they will go out and try to achieve against the top team in the world, with the playing XI for the England game all available to choose from. 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.

As a native Irishman Eoin Morgan, the captain of the beaten side, was meanwhile well placed to assess what the result meant for the home team and acknowledged that the better side had won on the day.

'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. "For us it's good that England didn't win because you always want to start with a win". "I'm not hugely disappointed about it because it was a good competitive game and that is all we could have asked for".

"It's a hugely exciting summer", said Buttler, who is expected to return to the fold for Wednesday's first ODI at The Oval after being rested for Sunday's shock defeat Scotland in Edinburgh.
