Bairstow Confident England Can Handle No.1 Tag Against Australia

Mark Wood

When one hears about a side ranked No. 13 in the ICC ODI Team Rankings beating the No. 1 ranked team, you would dismiss it as an upset but there was nothing upsetting about Scotland's historic six-run win over England at The Grange, Edinburgh on Sunday.

Eoin Morgan admitted England deserved to lose after their humiliating defeat at the hands of Scotland in Edinburgh. "Just a better understanding of the game of cricket and a better sense of self-belief, and when I'm out there, just backing my skills in and trying to entertain".

Talk of "partnerships" suggests that links with Scotland have switched from Durham, stricken by financial hardship, to Derbyshire, with Bradburn adding: "It's an exciting partnership between Cricket Scotland and Derbyshire". England now move on to play Australia in five one-day matches. Our chances at World Cups will be a bit more limited now but if we can built teams when they come up then that is how we sit up and be counted.

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.

The 31-year-old was suspended from global and first-class cricket for 12 months, along with former captain Steve Smith and opener Cameron Bancroft (nine months), for his role in the ball-tampering scandal that rocked world cricket in March.

For us, it's great England did not win because you always like to go into a series with a win.

Holiday cease-fire raises hopes for peace talks in Afghanistan
However, Taliban said in its statement that its forces would attack the foreign soldiers stationed in the war-torn country. In Kabul, a suicide attacker blew himself up outside the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, officials said.

It's a different format, but one in which Scotland have a decent record: 18-23 in 45 games.

England remain considerable favourites for the five-match series against an Australia side missing six first-choice players - David Warner, Steven Smith, Mitchell Marsh, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood - but the visitors are chipper after two warm-up wins. "At the end England didn't really finish the job". But they're a really unsafe side and you can't ever take them lightly.

He added: "We want more games".

Warner may not be playing but the banned batsman will join Australian broadcaster Channel Nine's commentary team from the second ODI in Cardiff on Saturday onwards.

I saw Justin Langer has said that Australia will carry on sledging but, to be honest, it is something that goes on with every country. He would have been mentally really hurt by that, his family would have been hurt, everyone was hurt. I still look up to the way he bowls though I may be ahead of him for this game, but you never know how it may pan out.
