Poor bowling concerns Morgan

Captain Eoin Morgan concedes that England need to learn from the mistakes they made during Sunday's shock six-run defeat to Scotland in Edinburgh.

Morgan had opted to field first after winning the toss, but Scotland scored a magnificent 371-5 from their 50 overs with Calum MacLeod smashing a brilliant 140 not out.

Despite Jonny Bairstow scoring a rapid century of his own, England finished just short of their target, slipping from 220-2 to 276-7 and eventually being bowled out for 365, as Scotland clinched a memorable triumph.

"Scotland played extremely well. They brought their best game and we didn't," Morgan admitted afterwards.

"We will make mistakes but hopefully we can learn from them.

"Our bowling strayed a little bit and, on a belting wicket, we got punished. Bairstow was exceptional and we looked like chasing it but a few errors hurt us."

The match was meant to be a warm-up for England's five-match ODI series against Australia, which begins at The Oval on Wednesday. England are 1/66 to win the series outright and 8/13 to emerge victorious in Wednesday's first game between the two teams.

Morgan added: "Usually, leading into a series we have a few days of training, then straight into it. Hopefully we will learn from this going into Wednesday's game."
