Twitterati applaud Scotland cricket team for historic win over England

Scotland defeated World No. 1 ODI team England on Sunday for the first time at Grange ground in Edinburgh. The spectators were surprised by the unexpected turn-around as Scotland won the match by six runs.

Batting first, Scotland posted a score of 371/5, their highest total in a one-day international.

In response to this, England were all out for 365 as the brilliant innings of 105 Jonny Bairstow did not suffice.

However, Bairstow became the first Englishman to post three successive ODI centuries.

The careless departures of Jason Roy (34), Eoin Morgan (20) and Alex Hales (52) and Joe Root (29) proved costly for the English side. Moeen Ali tried to repair the damage with a 33-ball 46 but England had left themselves too much to do.
