England’s Bairstow on Scotland defeat

England’s Bairstow on Scotland defeat

It's going to be a couple of quality games, we don't expect them to come here and not try to knock us all over the place.

'It was an interesting game. There is no question they deserve to be No 1 in the world despite their loss to Scotland.

Scotland beat England for the first time in worldwide cricket after a high-scoring, one-off ODI today. I didn't watch it as closely as I could have.

The 31-year-old was suspended from worldwide and first-class cricket for 12 months, along with former captain Steve Smith and opener Cameron Bancroft (nine months), for his role in the ball-tampering scandal that rocked world cricket in March.

He said: "On the positive side we are better for the run we have had, it is better than having two days of training leading into a big series against Australia, so there are mistakes we made and hopefully we can learn from them".

"At the end, England didn't really finish the job", he added.

Cameron Bancroft, who doctored a ball with sandpaper during South Africa's win in Cape Town, was also banned for nine months by Cricket Australia.

England suffered a six-run defeat to associate nation Scotland in a thrilling ODI on Sunday, conceding 371 runs after putting their Edinburgh hosts into bat before being bowled out for 365 in the penultimate over in pursuit of what would have been their record run-chase. "It's no good losing the lesson and the game - you've got to take something from it".

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first global cricket win over England was a "massive statement".

"To have the No.1 team in the world here, and the energy from the crowd, to set a total like that, what a game", he said.

Scotland's first win in worldwide cricket over England came in their first match since they were cruelly denied a place at next year's World Cup after a poor umpiring decision and rain saw them miss out in their final qualifier against the West Indies in Harare in March.

"The guys will enjoy themselves and I'm sure be fit and raring to go for the Pakistan games".

We've created an electric atmosphere and it's something we need to do more.
