    The TB question is a little contentious considering Pakistan (Amir) are playing

    Weather looks solid in Cardiff, not as warm as some parts of country are at the moment but should be set fair.

    Isn't Roy/Hales the worst opening partnership since the world cup? Pretty sure they had that stat come up in the S.A series. Basically when Hales is off form, Roy is on it and visa versa. Why not just open with Joe Root? He's used to doing it in ODIs by now, as well as test matches isn't it standard for England to be 35/3 inside the first 10 and for the likes of Root/Bairstow, sometimes Stokes/Ali to carry them? So he basically opens those two formats.

    Amir has a back spasm. Rumman Raees likely to play instead of him.

    Pakistan should def play Shadab even with the short straight boundaries. Generally think England are too good/professional to lose this against Pakistan, however the fact that it's apparently the third time this wicket has been used so far should narrow the gap between the teams.

    Yeah if that new bloke who hits a long ball (Ashraf?) does bowl as quick as Kimber makes it out, they should look to play Shadab for Amir really.

    Ok Amir out confirmed. That should reduce a lot of the expectations and nerves going into this game.

    Not sure who the plot armor is with today - England have the 'England ODI revival' story whilst Pakistan have the 'cornered tigers' story - I could see either team winning it.

    The cricinfo headline is 'Amir out, Bairstow in'

    Good pickup for Pakistan.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?
