Live discussion: England v Pakistan, 1st ODI, Cardiff

So then, the first one-day between England and Pakistan gets underway today. England began the second half of their one-day season in dispiriting style at Bristol on Tuesday, in a Twenty20. Pakistan ruthlessly brushed them aside. If the 5-0 drubbing Sri Lanka inflicted on them was painful, the next 10 days could be worse. Pakistan are an outstanding one-day side – and they know it.

What to do? Well we get the opportunity to watch Stuart Broad bowl ten overs, and that will be fascinating to see how he copes. Cue the “broad shoulders” pun come Thursday morning whether he does or not…

I’ll be on ball-by-ball for Cricinfo, so keep an eye on the scorecard, the bulletin and so forth…and leave your comments here as the game progresses.
