humiliating defeats in its opening two
World Cup games, England s tournament
survival will be on the line when it takes
on Scotland today, with the Scots rel-
ishing an opportunity to inflict further
misery on their southern neighbour.
England s first World Cup meeting
against Scotland appeared an easy assign-
ment when the draw was released, but
with confidence at rock bottom after
thrashings by Australia and New Zealand,
this match suddenly looms as a dangerous
The patriotic fervour will be high when
the nations meet on cricket s world stage
for the first time. The words of the anthem
Flower of Scotland ---of defeating the
English and sending them "homeward to
think again"---could be an unnerving pre-
The song will be apposite before Mon-
day s match, though England has been
shorn of the hubris the song derides. The
English know they simply must win the
game to prevent their World Cup campaign
descending into farce.
It could hardly face a more determined
opponent. The sporting rivalry between
England and Scotland, infused with lin-
gering animosity by battles of the distant
past, is bitter and long-established. Football
matches between the nations date back
to 1872 and are acknowledged as the oldest
international sporting event in the world,
in rugby they compete annually for the
Calcutta Cup, dating to 1879.
The cricket rivalry is much more recent.
Scotland devolved from England to become
an associate member of the International
Cricket Council in its own right in 1994.
It has met England in three one-day inter-
nationals since that schism and never won.
Yet it may never have a better chance
to do so than in today s match at Hagley
Oval. England s confidence has been all
but shattered by its 111-run loss to Australia
and it s eight-wicket defeat by New
Zealand in which it was bowled out for
123, a total New Zealand surpassed in 12.2
Scotland, in contrast, was emboldened
by its start to the tournament against New
Zealand. Though it was bowled out for
142, it defended that total tenaciously,
claiming seven New Zealand wickets in a
Taking a simple line through the respec-
tive performances against New Zealand,
Scotland is in better form and, as coach
Grant Bradburn said: "any day s a good
day for Scotland to play England."
Scotland captain Preston Mommsen is
South African-born and coach Bradburn
is a New Zealander and yet each has a
deep understanding of the importance of
Monday s occasion.
"There s always a huge rivalry between
Scotland and England in any sporting
event," Mommsen said. "I ve been to Mur-
rayfield (in Edinburgh) for a Scotland-
England (rugby) clash and the passion
that s on display there is pretty awesome
and hopefully that ll come out again
MELBOURNE---South Africa captain AB de Villiers
says the implications of his side s 130-run loss to
India run a lot deeper than just a setback in its
World Cup campaign.
The South Africans were comprehensively outplayed
by the defending champion Indians in their Pool B
match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground yesterday,
and de Villiers is concerned about the effect the
defeat will have on the morale of his team.
"It s a big knock for us to get beaten by 130 runs.
It s almost embarrassing. You never want to lose by
that amount of runs," he said.
While he s still confident of South Africa advancing
to the quarterfinals, de Villiers did not try to underplay
the impact Sunday s loss will have on his players.
"Your confidence takes a bit of a knock with per-
formances like that, and it s up to the senior group
of players to make sure that confidence is still there
come Friday against the West Indies. Things like
today s performance can creep into your game if you
start thinking about it too much, and if you allow
it to knock your confidence down."
Although he produced one of South Africa s better
performances in the field and was singlehandedly
responsible for two run outs, de Villiers was run out
himself early in his team s run chase, as was No 5
