Summary

  • Captain Eoin Morgan said that England are “not the finished article” in one-day cricket after their six-run defeat by Scotland in Edinburgh.
  • England have shown constant improvement in 50-over cricket since going out of the 2015 World Cup in the first round.
  • Before their trip to Scotland, they had lost only once in 10 series and they are the favourites to lift the World Cup on home soil in 2019.
  • However, in glorious batting conditions, they were hit by a brilliant 140 not out from Calum MacLeod that propelled Scotland to the fourth-highest total made against England in ODIs.
  • Morgan believes that, despite the defeat, the match against Scotland leaves his side better prepared to take on their fiercest rivals.
