• England’s bowling depleted as they begin Australia series
Scottish cricket’s feelgood factor rolls on, with their chairman talking of a possible step up to Test status and Calum MacLeod, the star of the historic victory against England, joining Derbyshire for this summer’s Twenty20 Blast.
MacLeod, whose unbeaten 140 from only 94 balls put the world’s top one-day international side to the claymore at the Grange on Sunday, is centrally contracted by Scotland and so will be on a free loan to the Falcons, who also get his head coach, Grant Bradburn, joining their set-up.
