One-Off One-Day International Between England and Scotland

Only hours after the match ended news headlines over the weekend announced that Scotland stuns England. Scotland celebrated its biggest victory in its cricket history as they beat England in the one-day international by six runs, the number one-ranked side looked dejected on Sunday.

England was certain of a victory as the one-day international nearer and started Sunday’s match in Edinburgh with confidence. Jonny Bairstow took advantage of short boundaries and a good pitch, which put Scotland in danger. It was the middle order collapse that renewed Scotland’s hope. Paceman Sharif was the one that sealed the victory for Scotland since he had seven balls spare when he got Mark Wood out.

Scotland’s First Win Over England in International Cricket

Scotland was denied a place in the World Cup, and that made the victory on Sunday means so much more. Sky Sports interviewed Shariff, in which the Scotsman was so happy that he was, lost for words. He said England was a bright side and that is the reason why Scotland had so much to celebrate. Scoring 371 against England is what the Scottish team have been waiting for.

Sharif added that he is not going to say anything about the International Cricket Council’s decision to decrease the World Cup participating teams from 14 to 10, he feels they saw it all on Sunday. The match and victory are better than any message he could send the ICC. The ICC gave been criticised by heavily for their decision to shrink the International Cricket World cup teams to just 10.

Embarrassing 2019 Reverse for England

In an interview with England’s Morgan, he told reporters that Scotland was indeed a dangerous side, who played at their best on Sunday, while England did not. It was the highest total at their level for Scotland as they surpassed their 341 for 9 against the non-test nation Canadian team, 4 years ago in Christchurch.

England team fans were shocked as Joe Root was run out and then England lost Alex Hales and Morgan. For the Sole family, which includes the caption of the Scotland rugby union in the 1990s that beat England in Murrayfield, he enjoyed this victory and could watch his son Chris on the field as a new-ball bowler for Scotland.

England said it’s not the end of the world, although it was an embarrassed reverse for the World Cup 2019 hosts just before their upcoming five-match series against Australia.

The non-test Scotland team believed they had the potential to beat the sport’s elite in Edinburgh, it is the exposure they desired and proofed again showed just how competitive the team is.

The 27-year-old, D’Arcy Short has played for major teams such as Western Australia, Northern Territory, Rajasthan Royals and the Hobart Hurricanes, his rise from the Australian domestic scene best described, as a whirlwind since now he is pushing for his place in next year’s World Cup squad. During the Australian season he helped Western Australia enjoy victory at the JLT one-day cup, D’Arcy also enjoyed a productive Big Bash as part of the Hobart Hurricanes as he became the leading scorer in the tournament, while he also earned an IPL deal and made his T201 debut.

By far the favourite to step into the shoes of David Warner, an ODI debut is on the horizon for D’Arcy Short to play alongside Aaron Finch in the one-day series soon to start against England. It is indeed a significant achievement for a player who first started playing state cricket in 2011. After training at Lord’s, Short shared that he was contemplating on giving up cricket for a while after his 12-month whirlwind experience.

D’Arcy Short achievements earned him call up

Short’s BBL achievements earned him a call-up for the Australian T20 tri-series involving New Zealand and England as well as an IPL contract with the Rajasthan Royals. He became an instant international hit after 196 runs in just five innings, 76 off 44 balls in the Eden Park world-record run. He struggled a bit in the IPL, in which he proved somewhat less successful, Short said his run out twice, made the start challenging while he learnt a lot and had a great experience towards the end.

By working with Warne, Short developed his left arm wrist-spin, he now feels confident after his progress, and it could be a hint of great things to come during the one-day series. Justin Langer, now in charge of the Australian team played a significant role in the revival of Short’s career as he implored him to get fit and is responsible for him playing on the WA side in the JLT Cup.

D’Arcy Short’s sports career is significant for several reasons apart from the fact that he rejuvenated his cricket career, he is the first indigenous batsman to represents Australia. His story offers indigenous players a bit of belief into themselves, and Short feels making his way into the Aussie side shows others how to reach a good pathway towards the opportunity to play for Australia. At the end it was playing for the Australian Indigenous XI in Brisbane a year ago that got Short’s career back on path after he did at one stage came close to giving up on cricket.
