Pakistan to face Scotland in first T20 in Edinburgh

Pakistan to face Scotland in first T20 in Edinburgh

Scotland, on a high, will now play back-to-back Twenty20 Internationals against Pakistan on Tuesday and Wednesday, while England will play their first ODI against Australia on Wednesday.

"It's a completely different challenge and a completely different team that we will be playing". First of all, it's great for Scotland.

Australia know they must build bridges across the cricketing world in order to fix reputations and trust.

The International Cricket Council had already angered Scotland and many of their fellow non-Test nations by cutting the number of teams at next year's World Cup from 14 to 10.

There was only one change in the squad from the T20I series against the West Indies in April, with Haris Sohail replacing Babar Azam, who fractured his wrist during the first Test against England last week.

England, after the end of a wonderful opening stand, rallied again, thanks to a 71-run eighth-wicket partnership between Moeen Ali (46, 33b, 3×4, 3×6) and Liam Plunkett (47 n o, 45b, 3×4, 2×6).




"It's part and parcel of the game", he said.

Langer said he would have sleepless nights trying firm up Australia's combination. He has suggested he prefers the extra bowling option and Maxwell's poor form could leave him vulnerable if Finch takes a middle-order role.

Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed scores 89 off 49 deliveries against Scotland. Even in this new era of toned-down sledging from Australia, it would be a surprise if England's stumble in Edinburgh wasn't given the occasional mention when the two sides meet.

Next up for England is a five-match ODI series against Australia, starting at The Oval on Wednesday, while Scotland can celebrate a day to remember.

"A one-off game like this, to bring your best game is very hard to do, they played well and deserved the result", said Morgan.

"Obviously they would have liked to have won the other day but if anything we saw once again just how unsafe their batting can be".

However, without David Warner and Steve Smith, the Australian side will have their backs against the wall and need the other players to step up and be counted and get the job done for the side against the hosts.
