In an unsettling development, England nearly competed on an even keel in the third ODI against Pakistan at The Rose Bowl. They nearly took them to the wire, too. Today is the fourth of the five-match series and yet again England are faced with a selection headache. Marcus Trescothickâ€™s withdrawal from the Champions Trophy means he could miss todayâ€™s match, too, as Andrew Strauss alluded to. And surely one of Sajid Mahmood or Rikki Clarke will be dropped in place of Graham Onions; at least, we hope so.
Weather is set fine, so we should have a full dayâ€™s play â€“ although, inevitably, the dew and moisture of Britainâ€™s late summer will affect conditions under the lights. Iâ€™ll be on ball-by-ball, so keep an eye on Cricinfo and leave your comments below of the dayâ€™s events.
