New Delhi: England has finally opened their account in the third game of the World Cup 2015 after beating traditional rivals Scotland by 119 runs. During the match, both English batsmen and bowlers performed superbly well to keep their hopes of making it to the next round alive.

On a high after clinching a win, England skipper Eoin Morgan said he was delighted with the performance as the players got a chance to express themselves. Eoin, full of praise for his openers Ian Bell (54) and Moeen Ali (128), said “I thought Bell and Moeen (Ali) played well reasonably tough circumstances, the ball held up a bit and nipped around early”.

The Skipper also added that there was no state of alarm bells ringing in the squad after the team lost both of its first two matches against Australia and England. Morgan said “

"No, I don't think there's ever a state of panic. Obviously two hard games, and the fact we didn't perform was the most disappointing, but a win just puts things a little more at ease”.  Morgan had a word of praise for Mooen Ali who in today's match delivered an all round show.

"I rate him really highly. He's an all-rounder which we haven't had for a very long time, somebody who opens the batting and plays in the fashion that he does, and the purchase he gets on the ball.” Eoin said.

Scotland were greeted with some good bowling from the England pacers upfront, their only resistance came in the form of Kyle Coetzer, who top scored with 71 runs. Finally, the Scots were bundled out for 184.
