    39.4 Stunning catch by Matt Prior gets the dangerman. Hamilton tries a cheeky shot trying to angle it away past the keeper and down to a fine third man. He gets it too fine and Prior takes a stunning catch high and to his left 129/7
    1.2 pitched up and defended and Watson backing up is stranded half-way up the track as Hamilton cries 'NO!'. Watson in vain tries to make his crease. Patel pounces on it from midwicket and Watson heads back to the pavillion. 7/1
    3.4 gone for a duck! This time Bresnan bowls a bit fuller and swinging away it catches the edge and a routine catch for Flintoff down low at second slip 10/2
    5.1 another fuller delivery and a carbon copy of Coetzer's dismissal. Poonia is sent packing as Patel catches it at third slip 11/3
    24.2 goes for the flashing cut and it catches a big outside edge and carries all the way down to third man for a routine catch 75/4
    27.2 he goes for the sweep shot and miscues it. Anderson takes this one cleanly on the boundary rope at deep square leg 80/5

Match Notes

  • Scotland v England, Only ODI, Edinburgh

    Match home for Scotland's first ODI against England

  • Rain the winner after Hamilton's grit

    Scotland waited a long time to face England at cricket - 136 years since they first met at football - but unfortunately rain meant the chance of a result was washed away

  • Bresnan called up as Sidebottom ruled out

    Tim Bresnan, the Yorkshire allrounder, has been called into England's squad for their ODI against Scotland, at the Grange, on Monday to cover for injury problems to Ryan Sidebottom and Chris Tremlett

  • England set for their highland fling

    This is the first time the Auld Enemy have met in a one-day international and it's the biggest match staged north of Hadrian's Wall. It's an occasion when Scotland have nothing to lose and everything to gain
