Shock loss to Scots will worry England, says Australia's Agar

Disgraced Australia opener David Warner set to return … in the commentary box Scottish cricket celebrates its greatest day after shock defeat of world number one ranked England

Australia know they must build bridges across the cricketing world in order to fix reputations and trust. Australia have attempted to draw a line under the controversy but captain Tim Paine and new head coach Justin Langer have insisted that Australia will continue to sledge on the field. Its win-loss ratio (0.25) over the past 12 months is the worst in the world, tied with Papua New Guinea.

England of course has problems of its own.

Morgan has agreed to counterpart Paine's request, saying he was "absolutely happy" with the idea, but it will only occur ahead of Wednesday's opening match of the series.

All five one-day internationals and the lone Twenty20 will be broadcast by the Nine Network.

England captain Eoin Morgan put on a fearless face saying the shock reversal will act as flawless preparation for the series.

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first global cricket win over England was a "massive statement".

Scotland beat England for the first time in global cricket after a high-scoring, one-off ODI today. There is certainly talent among the bowling group, with Billy Stanlake demonstrating fearsome pace and bounce during the T20 tri-series earlier in the year, though England's one-day tracks have been unforgiving environments in recent seasons.

"It's a team that has a lot of new guys in, without (Mitchell) Starc, (Josh) Hazlewood, (Pat) Cummins, (David) Warner, (Steven) Smith, so there are guys wanting to compete for places and we know just how unsafe that can be when people are pushing for a permanent place". In total, he has scored 1,853 ODI runs at an average of 35.

England were coasting in their reply as long as Jonny Bairstow (105 in 59 balls) was in charge, but Kyle Coetzer's men held their nerves to register their maiden victory over the opposition at Grange Cricket Club in Edinburgh.

"But I think they are slowly realizing that without Anthony Joshua , the future is not too bright and rosy for Deontay Wilder ". Starsport understands it is considerably more than the £9.3m that Hearn originally offered Wilder back in early April.

Many cricketing legends and pundits took to social media to support Scotland and the rise of Associate Nations.

'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.

Shaun Marsh looks set to miss out on the first ODI.

The series consists of 5 ODIs and one T20I. But careless departures of Jason Roy (34), Eoin Morgan (20) and Alex Hales (52) and Joe Root (29) proved costly for the side.

"We want more games".

Alasdair Evans of Scotland takes the wicket of David Willy.

There will be one enforced change, at least for the start of the series, as all-rounder Ben Stokes recovers from a hamstring injury. They started the chase well with Jonny Bairstow bringing up his third consecutive century.

It is the first time an English batsman has achieved the feat - only Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara has more with four - and it was his fifth ton in his last 16 innings.
