    England 3 for 98 after 27.0 overs Flintoff 9, Trescothick 56

    England may have done enough already to win this game. 200 plus is quite likely to be a winning score on this pitch.

    BTW did this guy who tried to meet her majesty the Queen at Buckingham palace, make it to Rose Bowl ?

    A Flintoff 21* (38b 2x4) ME Trescothick 64* (95b 7x4)


    Looks like there may be a long delay . Does anyone know what the weather forecast is for the rest of the day and tomorrow ?

    Natwest Challenge would have been a good series to try that out

    He scored 99 in the middle order anyways but would have been interesting him at 3 or opening

    I think it's fine for Flintoff to open in good batting conditions, especially in Sri Lanka where the opening 15 overs is cannon fodder time for the bowlers. I wouldn't have Flintoff at the top 3-4 in most English conditions, a good batting wicket at Lord's would be an exception to this

    SL have themselves to blame for letting England off the hook by dropping catches (both Tresco and Freddie) , But Billy Bowden helped Tresco with one big decision as well (caught behind Off Maharoof).

    SL cannot blame Billy, but themselves.

    With Freddie set and Tresco looking good England should make 240-250 easily.

    This should be at least 50 runs more than what SL can achieve on this pitch if Harmo and Goughy get going with Freddie and Wharf.

    I think Sri Lanka will be happy with anything less than 250, if they get a quick wicket on resumption it could be an easy win.

    I've just driven to Southampton and back this morning - 7 hours on the road for a half hour interview.

    It rained most of the way there (let me rephrase that - it POURED) then stopped 25 miles North of Southampton. On the way back, same - dry for a bit then 150 miles of rain.

    If that lot all makes its way to the Rose Bowl, they won't play for a week.

    The weather forecasts I've seen all suggest Saturday will have much better weather, although still a little mixed with cloud & sunshine. Ideally England would get their last 18 overs in today then that would be it, meaning it would be relatively fair to both teams. Being a cynic I bet England end up batting in the morning TWICE and Sri Lanka get the sunshine tomorrow.

    Well, my money went on the overpriced SL side pre-game - but will accept it being rained off (stake refunded)
