Just a day before the match Eoin Morgan had said about Scotland being ‘extremely competitive’. He was absolutely right in his assessment. Scotland have carved their name in the history books by defeating England in an ODI at Edinburgh by 6 runs. Scotland posted a huge total of 371 after being asked to bat. The openers provided a good start before Calum MacLeod took over. MacLeod scored 140 not out in 94 with 16 fours and 3 sixes. Kyle Coetzer (58) and George Munsey (55) also recorded half-centuries. Adil Rashid and Liam Plunkett shared 4 wickets between them.

England started the chase well with Jonny Bairstow (105) bringing up his third consecutive century. Alex Hales also got up 52 but could not convert it to anything big. Moeen Ali (46) and Plunkett (47*) fought hard but failed to take their team home. Mark Watt starred with the ball picking up 3 for 55.
