• Safyaan Sharif yorks Mark Wood to spark joy in Edinburgh
None of the 4,000 or so supporters who crammed into the Grange in Edinburgh or climbed trees outside its walls to glimpse a view will ever forget the day that Scotland sent England, the world’s No1 ODI team, homeward tae think again.
In years to come the number who claim to have been present when Kyle Coetzer’s side inflicted a thrilling six-run defeat on the Auld Enemy will doubtless swell too – perhaps to that which watched the Rolling Stones at Murrayfield the night before – such was the magnitude of this win for an associate nation with dreams of one day joining the top table.
