    I've heard Aaron Finch is in doubt due to blistered hands.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    He has never heard of hand cream?

    He clearly needs hand cream with a higher maximum run rating.

    I would like Finch to get some runs in ODIs (Scotland doesn't really rate). Only got one gear it seems, although he did block a few the other day against Wardlaw.

    Likewise. Finch's ODI record is modest thus far. I hope his rich vein of form continues. But cricket is a funny game.

    Tomorrow will be a washout but anyway.

    If we do play then I think Trott will be opening the batting with Carberry?

    Trott, Carberry, Pietersen, Morgan, Root, Bopara, Buttler, Tredwell, Finn, Rankin, A.N Other? Does Stokes play and bat at eight or do we play a proper seamer?

    Pretty sure Root would bat 4 and Morgan 5 in that line-up.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    I'm not sure England will open with KP with two new white balls? Goes against their ethos a little bit doesn't it?

    Pietersen's not some poor quality pinch hitter though. He's a world class test batsman, just like the others who have had success opening for England recently, has the game to survive early testing conditions and to make big scores.
