Calum MacLeod hammers fastest ODI hundred for Scotland, shatters records

12 June 2018

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.

Calum Macleod hit an unbeaten century to guide Scotland to a six-run victory over England in the one-off ODI.

David Willey bowled his full ten overs for the first time in ODI cricket for almost two years despite Cricviz data showing he has swung the ball less on only two previous occasions in his England career.

MacLeod, who has scored 2,342 runs in 85 games for Scotland, has previously played for Warwickshire and Durham.

This was Scotland's first match since March, when they narrowly missed out on qualification for the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. We didn't do enough to win. It does not take away what happened in Zimbabwe and everyone's feelings about the ten-team World Cup but this was a special day'. That is the bigger shop window rather than personal side of it.

Both matches will take place at the Grange Cricket Club, where Scotland registered their highest ODI score and also the highest ODI score by an associate nation in their one-off ODI against England on Sunday.

"If ICC and other worldwide teams look at this game they will see we are not an add on".

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.

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

"The level of expectation has been high around the team for a while, it doesn't get higher than being number one in the world", said Morgan, whose side now face a five-match one-day series against Australia starting on Wednesday.

"Everyone just wants to listen to them talk and we can't get enough of them".
