World Cup 2007

When Scotland beat Australia

Andrew Miller

It may not have happened in St Kitts yesterday, but it has happened once before in history. The Herald's correspondent, Neil Drysdale, reflects on the moment in 1882 when the world order was turned upside-down.

The occasion is worth celebrating, not least because, exactly a month later, the majority of these same Australians were involved in one of the most significant acts in sporting history when they beat England at The Oval and proved the catalysts for a subsequent 125 years of ferocious Ashes rivalry
