  1. Farewell

    Well Scotland may not be at the World Cup, in either football or cricket unfortunately - let's not dwell on that - but they have their first win over England to savour - and what an incredible win it was. We've seen 736 runs, 75 fours and 24 sixes and Stephan Shemilt has somehow managed to describe it all in his in-depth analysis.

    Please join the team over the next few days to find out what happens next in the wonderful world of international cricket. Cheerio now.

  2. Post update

    The next international cricket on the BBC takes place on Tuesday as England Women seek to square their series with South Africa in the second ODI at Hove. Mark Mitchener will provide a text commentary for the website and there will be live commentary on 5 live sports extra from 12:45 BST.

    Should England have been chasing 372 if they're number one in the world and Scotland are number 13?

    Yes - this pitch and this ground deserved that many runs, the outfield was small and lightning-quick. Scotland played fearless cricket.

    That was a magnificent game of cricket - 6,000 very happy people probably didn't expect to go home having seen something like this.

    If you're England, you might rather lose this game than the first game of a series against Australia.

    John Woods: What a result. It's almost 1am in Thailand & I've been glued to TMS desperately hoping for our 1st win over the Auld Enemy. Great performance boys.

    Graham Yapp: Well done, Scotland. Someone needs to burn a stump quickly so we play each other for the McAshes in future!

    Patrick Brennan: That loss stemmed from the arrogance of Hales, Billings etc. Throwing away wickets thinking England had it won.

  6. Post update

    For England there is an early chance to atone, a five-match ODI series against their old adversaries Australia begins at The Oval on Wednesday. I hope the stump mics are on for that one, the "badinage" should be intriguing.

  7. Post update

    After those two Twenty20s, the Scots then head to the Netherlands for a T20 tri-series with the hosts and Ireland beginning next weekend.

    George Davis: England bin another cricket match from multiple positions where they surely couldn’t lose. What’s new?

    Steven Gordon: Well done Scotland, joining the Celtic beaters-of-England club (established 2011). Not totally sure but I think you're now the number one ODI side in the world, according to the official rules.

    Dave Wood: Flat pitch, short boundaries, fast outfield. Was always going to be run fest. Wouldn't start writing Englands obituary just yet.

  9. Post update

    Scotland are back in action at the Grange in Edinburgh pretty soon, on Tuesday to be precise, when they play Twenty20 matches against Pakistan on successive days.

  10. Post update

    Scotland spinner Mark Watt after his 3-55 in his first match against England: "This means absolutely everything. The wicket was stopping a little bit and we had to take our chances. When Jonny was whacking it to all parts of the ground we just had to stay patient."

    Jez: Can I ask? What does Bayliss do?

    Alan: Congratulations Scotland, but for England that goes down as one of the best casual batting throwaways for a while. YJB excused.

    Mark in Scarborough: Regardless of what happens with the result, don’t give the MOTM award to a batsman. Give it to the guy who took three wickets, on a batting paradise, at five-and-a-half an over - Mark Watt.

  12. Post update

    More from Eoin Morgan: "We were a bit rusty [bowling] and missed our lines a little - we only got together yesterday, but hopefully we'll be better on Wednesday.

    "The level of expectation has been high around the team for a while, it doesn't get higher than being number one in the world. I don't think we were far away, we go to a ground now that we know really well in The Oval, and we'll be up for the challenge."

  13. Post update

    England captain Eoin Morgan on Sky Sports: "Scotland played probably close to their best cricket, we didn't and we were punished. It's not the end of the world for us, it was a good run-out rather than having a couple of days of practice it's better to play a highly competitive game under pressure.

    "I don't think 370 reflected the size of the ground - I felt it was more like a 330-340 chase. Jonny was outstanding, he really did progress in the winter and set up a great platform for us to chase such a high total."

    Kenny Kong: Oh dear England, can't even beat an associate nation, bowling looking laboured and as usual too many sloppy shots. Series against Australia is not going to be fun to follow.

    Daniel Potter: We've lost through poor, poor bowling, so much short bowling being punished and persisting with it! So to bowl short at the death, when everyone involved in cricket knows to bowl Yorkers, is irresponsible.

    The key dismissals for me were Bairstow, the Root run-out and Moeen Ali who gave it away when they were cruising towards victory. But credit to Scotland for playing so well.

  16. Get Involved


    Shivam Chauhan: Congratulations Scotland, but let's not forget about the most under rated England player - Liam Plunkett. Always solid with the ball, in the field and with the bat. Always seems to be the pick of the England players - consistent lad.

    Buzzer: Well played Scotland! Deserved that! Not a day for England to remember especially Hales who caused the mid innings wobble with 2 x dreadful pieces of cricket.

  17. Post update

    Scotland made 371 with 45 fours and eight sixes, beating their previous best ODI total against Canada in Christchurch four years ago by 30 runs. England needed to make their highest ODI chase and they fell six runs short of the home side's score, after 30 fours and 16 sixes in their innings.

  18. Post update

    The Scotland team are taking in a very well-deserved lap of honour in the evening sunshine, rows of jubilant fans waving Saltire flags and savouring the occasion.

  19. Post update

    Where do you think that match was won? Joe Root's run out? The two wickets in successive balls? Jonny Bairstow's brilliance had brought up England's century in just the 10th over and they were 220-2 in the 27th over. But 365 all out.

  20. Post update

    Scotland's Safyaan Sharif: "We've been waiting for this for so long. The wicket was good. England are a brilliant side but scoring 371 against them means the world."

    What does this say to the ICC and the decision to reduce the number of teams in the World Cup?

    "I'm not going to say anything - they've seen it all today."
