Scotland pulled off a historic win on Sunday as they beat World No. 1 ODI team England for the first time at Grange ground in Edinburgh. Spectators watched in disbelief as Scotland won the match by six runs.

England were all out for 365 after Scotland made 371 for five, their highest total in a one-day international. Jonny Bairsto hit a brilliant 105 to become the first Englishman to post three successive ODI centuries.
