And the Scotland links do not end there.

"It's certainly one of the best games of cricket I've been involved in".

Scotland beat England by six runs to record the greatest win in their cricket history as they held their nerve in an one-off one-day worldwide at Edinburgh on Sunday.

He told the club website: "It's an exciting partnership between Cricket Scotland and Derbyshire". England were more like a shower in Scotland.

It was a brilliant performance by the Scots against an England team who are now top of the one-day global rankings.

Instead this was a victory for the 13th ranked side in world cricket and made a mockery of the International Cricket Council's decision to stage just a 10-team World Cup without the Scots in England next year.

"As a Scotland team we have looked at the way Afghanistan and Ireland have progressed and that has been on the back of beating full member teams".

David Sole, the captain of the Scotland rugby union side that beat England at Edinburgh's Murrayfield in 1990 to win a Grand Slam in the old Five Nations, was among the Grange crowd to watch his son Chris, one of Scotland's new-ball bowlers.

The price of Ethereum also fell 9.14 percent to reach 570,000 won and Ripple dropped 9.34 percent to 640 won. The Korean National Police Agency didn't immediately reply to a request for comment.

"This does not take away what happened in Zimbabwe and everyone's feelings about the ten team World Cup but this was a special day". How they proved a point on Sunday.

He has had previous experience in county cricket with Warwickshire and Durham, and has featured in 74 Twenty20s, scoring 1,867 runs at an average of 29.17 and a strike rate of 126.

Ali's 46 threatened to spare England's blushes only for the all-rounder to be undone by a slower delivery from left-arm spinner Mark Watt.

In a match of records, Bairstow's century was his third in a row - the first time an English batsman has done that - but his effort was in vain as England came up short.

It looked as if England would win while Jonny Bairstow was at the crease.

"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", the Yorkshireman added.

And to think this was meant to be a warm-up.

While England were suffering a surprise ODI defeat to Scotland in Edinburgh, or "Henning Berg" - former Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers defender - according to Bumble's mispronunciation, attention turned to the upcoming Australia series and the hosts' preparation for the World Cup in a year's time. It can not possibly be any tougher than this.
