England vs Australia 2018: 5 player battles to watch out for

Calum MacLeod played an innings to do not forget to lead Scotland to a fantastic six-run win over England in their one-off one-day global on Sunday and later called the result "a massive statement from Scottish cricket".

Calum MacLeod s superb 140 not out powered non-Test nation Scotland to a record 371 for five against an England side who are top of the one-day global rankings. But Safyaan Sharif sealed Scotland's victory with seven balls to spare dismissing last man Mark Wood to spark a pitch invasion by jubilant home fans.

The Scotland skipper, who impressed with the bat by hitting 58 at the top of the order to set the tone for the rest of the day as they posted 371, was well aware of just how big the win was in terms of Scottish cricket and even world cricket.

Scotland are on a high after winning the one-off ODI against England.

MacLeod - his country's first centurion against England - timed the ball superbly in a magnificent 94-ball innings, but he was far from the only hero for a team who will not compete in the next Cricket World Cup after a controversial reduction in the number of competing nations.

Asked if England would use the ball-tampering in sledging, Morgan replied: "No".

Manchester United And Liverpool Targets Not Considered Unavailable At Lazio
It is not only the interest from Juve and Real that perhaps makes the eventuality of Milinkovic-Savic joining United now unlikely. Nonetheless, United could also be delay by the Serbia worldwide's price, with Lazio setting an asking value of £87.5million.

The No. 13 side, Scotland, coming off heartbreak at the World Cup qualifiers produced a world-class performance to defeat the top-ranked England in a nail-bitter at Edinburgh on Sunday.

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.

But they lost both openers in quick succession to be 107 for two.

Watch the first ODI between England and Australia from The Oval, live on Sky Sports Cricket & Main Event from 12.30pm on Wednesday. MacLeod, however, ensured a promising start was not wasted and together with George Munsey (55, 51b, 7×4, 1×6) put on 107 for the fourth wicket.

Jason Roy and Bairstow launched England's reply with a century stand but Bairstow holed out when he might have won the game. But Bairstow was caught on 105, then a stupid mistake by Alex Hales saw England's Joe Root run out for just 29 with England on 220.

Jos Buttler will return to an England team still recovering from Sunday's shock six-run defeat to Scotland.
