How social media reacted to England's defeat to Scotland

England were all out for 365 after Scotland made 371 for five, their highest total in a one-day worldwide.

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.

However, England were undermined by a succession of soft dismissals after Bairstow holed out in the 18th over.

But having seen England beat Australia 4-1 in an ODI series Down Under earlier this year, captain Morgan was confident this loss would not do lasting damage to England's morale.

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". We didn't do enough to win.

Scotland's victory will send out a powerful message to the ICC, which voted to restrict the 2019 World Cup to 10 teams from the previous 14, which makes it far more hard for second-tier sides to qualify.

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first worldwide cricket win over England was a "massive statement". 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'. "This should be a catalyst for more games". That is the bigger shop window rather than personal side of it.
