    Umm Anderson's just returned from having a stress frature in his back and has played 3 ODIs. I don't class 3 ODIs preceded by about half a year out as playing regularly and I don't expect him to be close to 100%.
    Mahmood's just shocking.

    S Tait - a dead set enigma. Mixes a profuson of wides & no balls with jaffas. Seriously rapid though.

    I wouldn't be reading too much into this game.

    It's equivalent to a Lilac Hill tour opener.

    Wouldn't be surprised if champagne was inbibed pre-game.

    Cook gone to Hilfenhaus, perhaps a rivalry that we'll see plenty more of in the future?

    Been a lovely spell from Tait. Very accurate by his standards, and surprisingly quick, if those speed readings are accurate. Bowling up around 147-149 consistently, with one up to 151. That's around 92-95 mph. Economy rate of 1.2 will do, anyway.

    Result of the game is a foregone conclusion now, but England should at least use the overs to get some time in the middle for their batsmen. At least Strauss looks good.

    Andrew Strauss is looking very good on 62 from 61, if him and Pietersen get a partnership going then this game might be closer than we first thought. Superb opening spell from Tait but everything else was pretty average. England currently 108/3 off 20 overs.
