Hello and welcome to Headingley for the 1st ODI between Australia and England. It's looking like a wet start here... fingers crossed for an 'as scheduled' commencement!
What are everyone's predictions for the first ODI at Headingley?
It's looking bleak team...
@ManojRoshantha: Wet as the Pacific I'm afraid Manoj. See the ECB photo below... :-(
@ManojRoshantha: And of course, how are you?
@ManojRoshantha: Great to hear. Word on the street is there's a very slim chance of any play at all! Boo!
@nikhiltait: Nik! How are you sir? It's darn wet at Headingley
@ManojRoshantha: Overnight I believe... it's not looking good
@nikhiltait: I know. It's a disgrace :-)
@nikhiltait: I'm good. Not as good as Finch mind you :-) But good. Have you checked out the AUS v SCOT highlights. It's just off a little digital camera, but my hat, Marsh and Finch looked to be hitting the ball hard
@DaveMeadowcroft: Ooh. Good question. I like Silk... but I'm not sure about throwing him straight into the AUS XI yet. Maybe after a big Shield season?
@nikhiltait: Good idea. You need to stockpile youtube vids in this weather
@nikhiltait: Darn! That's the worst. Do you have a book handy? :-)
@DaveMeadowcroft: Haha good man. Fingers crossed it clears up soon!
@ManojRoshantha: Oooh... here we go. I think they'll play Faulkner, Johnson and McKay as the quicks, obviously Ahmed as the spinner. and 1. Finch 2. Marsh 3. Watson 4. Hughes 5. Clarke 6. Maxwell 7. Wade. What do you reckon?
@nikhiltait: You're a star!
@nikhiltait: Ah very good. Was it a good occasion?
