Morgan backs England to learn from shocking loss against Scotland

Scotland enjoyed the greatest victory in their cricket history by holding their nerve to beat world number one-ranked England by six runs in a thrilling one-day worldwide at Edinburgh on Sunday.

England were all out for 365 after Scotland made 371 for five, their highest total in a one-day global.

The visitors, the number-one ranked ODI side, came up just short at the death in their pursuit of the Scots' 371 for five.

However, they suffered a middle-order collapse and the match ended with seven balls remaining when Scotland paceman Saf Sharif had England No 11 Mark Wood plumb leg before to seal a famous victory.

Defeat raised fresh questions about England's ability to win one-off, winner-takes-all fixtures following last year's Champions Trophy semi-final loss to Pakistan.

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

Theresa May calls on Trump to honour G7 commitments
Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support. There is more to leadership than hosting a meeting and posing for a smiling selfie.

The world's top-ranked ODI team lost by six runs after just failing to pull off what would have been the second highest one-day worldwide run chase.

'There were still quite a few mistakes we need to rectify ahead of the Australia series (starting on Wednesday).

"We didn't do enough to win, if we had won it would have been a bonus from where we were", added the former Ireland batsman.

A combination of a controversial umpiring decision - with no review system in place - and rain saw them just miss out in the qualifying tournament in Zimbabwe.

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. "This should be a catalyst for more games".
