Pakistan crush Scotland by 48 runs in first T20I

Pakistan set a mammoth target of 205 runs

Scotland failed continue with their brilliant run they had against England in the one-off one day global on Sunday when the minnows stunned their neibhours for the first time.

"They don't have to do it but it's something we want to bring in at the start of a series, not before every game", said Paine, of the handshake idea.

But a lot of water has passed under that particular bridge, with Buttler helping the tourists respond in kind with a 4-1 ODI series win back in January to help move to No.1 in the world rankings.

Jonny Bairstow is braced for Australia to provide a real challenge in this month's ODI series as his England teammates look to bounce back from their humbling defeat to Scotland.

Pakistan Cricket team Captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed said, "We were not taking them lightly even before the England match".

After falling to 200 for three after 30 overs, George Munsey came to the middle and put on 107 for the fourth wicket before falling to Adil Rashid, but MacLeod continued to thrash the ball around the park to send Scotland sailing past 350.

"We didn't play anywhere near to our best", said skipper Eoin Morgan.

The Oval last hosted an ODI in September 2017 where West Indies beat England by six runs in a high scoring, run-curtailed affair.

The International Cricket Council had already angered Scotland and many of their fellow non-Test nations by cutting the number of teams at next year's World Cup from 14 to 10.

Indeed Lancashire's Buttler forms a major part of those plans, leading the way for an exciting and attacking brand of cricket that has mostly worked at home and overseas. That is the bigger shop window rather than the personal side.

We've created an electric atmosphere and it's something we need to do more. "We want to be courageous enough to walk through the door and win games". We're at No.1 in the world, so that gives us a huge amount of confidence.

Justin Langer, Australia's new coach, met questions about team culture head on before the series, promising that his team would continue to sledge - just as he does playing cards against his daughter - but clarifying "there is a difference between banter and abuse". This should be a catalyst for more games.

"We set our stall out to be number one in the world and that's where we are, whether we were number one in this game or not, Scotland would still be delighted to win, it's not just because we are number one".
