Great performance by Scotland Dave

A crap decision to reduce the teams to 10 which prevents Scotland competing in the World Cup. They should get more top flight matches. Gone are the days when teams would think playing Scotland was an easy win. Emerging teams like them should get more support

There may be a slight attendance problem at works across Scotland tomorrow.

Well said Herlock, and well done Scotland. Judging by the scoreline - and the result! - that must have been an entertaining game to watch.

Very gracious Sam, thank you.

I don't think the footy WC will miss us much, but proud to say the Cricket one definitely will.

If that downpour had not happened against the windies, we would have been there...but that's cricket and part of the fun...and despair.

Brilliant game too.

It looks like my comments about Trump have got me onto Dave’s ignore list

No Herlock, that post originally said "chaps" rather than "Sam" then I noticed your location....no need to thank a fellow Scot!

I'm not so petty as to ignore a fellow ripperoligist over something as petty as politics....tell me a dog ran away with an apron and I might do though.

I’m not a Scot but my gran was.

No problem Dave.

Great game, great performance by Scotland.

No chance with the dog thing. Maybe an aardvark though.

I read "West Midland's" as West Lothian....apologies.

I thank you for your graciousness in defeat, much more civilized than my mocking in victory, but honestly never thought I'd see this in my lifetime.

I was in london at the time, getting sunburnt, listening to TMS, never thought we had a chance as you are the best whiteball team at the moment imo.

When Bairstow was in full flow I thought that we were going to win but Scotland did the business. They certainly showed more backbone than we do in the test format. It would have been good to see them in the World Cup. There have probably been a few ‘phew’s’ from the ‘top’ teams that they arent. Let’s hope that they get more opportunities to play on the world stage.
We’re a good one day side at the moment. Its a pity that we resemble a pack of cards on the test arena

Huh? Just smashed Pakistan by an innings and bowled them out twice for under 200..... And this is probably the best Pakistan team since their heyday of the mid-2000s swhen they had Younis, Yussuf and Inzy in that beast of a middle-order back then...
