Scotland stun England in Edinburgh run-fest

Disgraced Australia opener David Warner set to return … in the commentary box

The Saltires recorded the biggest victory in their history by edging out the No.1 one-day team in the world by six runs in Edinburgh.

Calum MacLeod s superb 140 not out powered non-Test nation Scotland to a record 371 for five against an England side who are top of the one-day global rankings.

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.

Despite their surprise Scotland defeat, Australia skipper Tim Paine does not expect that, nor England's 4-1 ODI series win during their winter down under, to have any bearing on the outcome of the upcoming series. 'We've been waiting for this for so long.

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.

Asked if Scotland had sent a message to the ICC with this win, Sharif replied: 'I'm not going to say anything - they've seen it all today'.

Confident England may be but a humbling defeat to Scotland on Sunday was hardly the preparation Buttler and co were hoping for - against a side who aren't competing in next year's World Cup.

Trump, Kim agree to repatriating U.S. military remains
It was shocking, he said, because these exercises are fundamental to our military relationship with South Korea. US forces in South Korea were also apparently clueless as to the decision to suspend the military exercises.

England's seam bowling in Scotland looked thin without Stokes and Chris Woakes, leaving Morgan short of options as boundaries were being flayed by Calum MacLeod.

Matthew Cross (48) and Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer (58) got the hosts off to a solid start with a century stand for the first wicket.

The Oval tends to be good for batting whatever the format, and there have been 10 300-plus ODI scores on the ground since 2015.

Eoin Morgan insists England will not use the ball-tampering scandal as ammunition for sledging in the five-match one-day series against Australia.

He will be up against Jonny Bairstow who is enjoying a rich vein of form and will be taking guard in the match after scoring three successive hundreds in this format.

However, England were undermined by a succession of soft dismissals after Bairstow holed out in the 18th over. But Bairstow was caught on 105, then a stupid mistake by Alex Hales saw England's Joe Root run out for just 29 with England on 220.
