Calum MacLeod hundred powers Scotland to record 371/5 vs England

Derbyshire have added to their T20 Blast squad by signing batsman Calum MacLeod, who led Scotland to a one-day triumph over England on Sunday.

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 paceman Safyaan Sharif sealed Scotland's victory with seven balls to spare when he had No.11 Mark Wood plumb lbw to spark a pitch invasion by jubilant home fans.

The visitors, playing their first one-day game of the season, were given a hurricane start by Jonny Bairstow who hit a brilliant 105 to become the first Englishman to post three successive ODI centuries.

"A one-off game like this, to bring your best game is very hard to do, they played well and deserved the result", said Morgan.

Morgan, however, accepted they had been well below the standard needed to win in what was their first 50-over match of the British season. 'We were miles off where we expect to be and didn't do enough.

Hussain interviewed Langer ahead of the series - watch the first ODI live on Sky Sports Cricket on Wednesday - who told him the team "would carry on sledging, but not resort to abuse".

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.

"Teams with massive potential like Afghanistan, Ireland, Scotland along with many others have to be given more opportunities to play against the more experienced teams".
