Scotland cricket enjoys biggest-ever day with win over England

England though will not have long to absorb the lessons of that loss, with the first ODI against Australia at The Oval on Wednesday.

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.

"To score three on the bounce is really pleasing considering 12 months ago people were questioning whether I should be playing or be opening the batting or be in the middle order", he said.

The 2019 World Cup hosts have just a few days to recover from a stunning one-day global defeat before they face title-holders Australia in the first of a five-match series at The Oval on Wednesday.

The win came in Scotland's first match since they agonisingly just missed out on qualification for the 2019 World Cup in Zimbabwe in March.

"Cricket has all the ingredients to become a global game", Tendulkar said on Twitter after Scotland's shock win. "That is the bigger shop window rather than personal side of it", said MacLeod.

However, they are the No.1 ranked 50-over team in the world and been transformed under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan after their shambolic showing at the 2015 World Cup. This should be a catalyst for more games. "They'll (ICC) have seen it all today so hopefully they'll click onto that".

"I've always seen having that extra bowling option work well in domestic cricket, particularly if your seven and eight can bat a bit and we've seen that with Ashton Agar and Michael Neser". 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.

'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.

"Everyone just wants to listen to them talk and we can't get enough of them". "To bring your best game in a one-off game like this is very hard to do but I thought they played close to their best cricket".

"We might have scraped past them and won, but there were still quite a few mistakes made that we need to rectify and learn from ahead of the Australia series".

"I'm not hugely disappointed, it was a good competitive game which was all we could have asked for".

Derbyshire have added to their T20 Blast squad by signing batsman Calum MacLeod, who led Scotland to a one-day triumph over England on Sunday.
