The Saltires recorded the biggest victory in their history by edging out the No.1 one-day team in the world by six runs in Edinburgh.

Ashton Agar believes Australia can exploit the uncertainty created by England's shock six-run defeat to Scotland in the forthcoming ODI series.

Ahead of Australia's one-day worldwide meeting with England - their first competitive match since the scandal-ridden tour - Paine asked Eoin Morgan if the teams could have a pre-match handshake on the field.

"To have the No.1 team in the world here, and the energy from the crowd, to set a total like that, what a game", he said.

The other side (Scotland) is comprising with Kyle Coetzer (captain), Richie Berrington, Dylan Budge, Matt Cross, Alasdair Evans, Craig Wallace, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, Hamza Tahir, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Chris Sole, Mark Watt, Brad Wheal, Stuart Whittingham.

While North Korean denuclearization is undoubtedly a good thing, some worry that Kim is all talk. A special young man and I have to say special parents, special people.

The disappointment is still very much there among the Scottish players, but MacLeod said the win over England will help put the team on the path to rebuilding.

The Scots, sent into bat by England captain Eoin Morgan, lost two wickets in quick succession to be 107 for two off 15 overs.

The Oval tends to be good for batting whatever the format, and there have been 10 300-plus ODI scores on the ground since 2015.

He will be up against Jonny Bairstow who is enjoying a rich vein of form and will be taking guard in the match after scoring three successive hundreds in this format.

"You have a couple of really good players who aren't in the mix at the moment, having said that, we do have a really versatile squad, an injection of youth which is always helpful, so there's a lot of energy and a lot of players who are really believing in themselves at the moment".
