Afternoon, all. The bad bit first? You won’t believe it… it’s raining at Old Trafford. Quite heavily, so says the world wide web. But there are optimistic types who believe they’ll be on an hour or two after the scheduled start of 1pm BST. As my great, great, great (great?) uncle wrote, after Ned Kelly said it on the gallows, such is life.

When they do get on, it’ll be for the second of three one-day internationals between England and South Africa with the home side in what looks to be a white-ball rut. Since the start of their run of games every other day a few weeks ago, they’ve been beaten in five of seven matches. With a T20 World Cup coming in October, then their ODI title defence a year on from that, this will soon become a bit of a thing.

Although, I’m not sure how much one can read from the series opener on Tuesday on the hottest day in British history. The fact that Matty Potts could barely function as a human being, let alone as an athletic quick, reinforced that point. Nevertheless, the Proteas played the conditions perfectly by working the fielding team over in the Hot Hot Heat with big Rassie ver der Dussen – one of the most satisfying names to say in all of world cricket – clocking his third ODI ton. He averages 75 in this format now across a sample size of 30 innings across the better part of three years.

The most noteworthy contribution for England was Mark Wood’s Sky Cricket debut, which he nailed. Oh, and both Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow returned to form (yes, they had enough time since the Tests have a rough trot) with 86 and 63 respectively.

Of course, the major structural change for Jos Buttler’s team is the fact that Ben Stokes is no longer available for selection in this format of the game after his retirement. I’m sure as the rain falls we’ll have plenty of time to get into that in your emails or if you want to hit me up on twitter. Phil Salt is likely to get his chance in a re-jigged batting line-up that might see Moeen Ali promoted back into the top four.

As for Keshav Maharaj’s team – and let’s take a moment to reflect on how wonderful it is that a finger spinner is leading an international side – they’re without Andile Phehlukwayo who copped a head knock when running into his skipper on Tuesday.

Right, we’ll take a beat now until the TV coverage begins and we have a sense of how bad the rain is/how long we’ll be talking amongst ourselves. Do keep me company.

Key events

Sky are on air. Goodness me, it looks foul and there’s nobody there. uh oh “The forecast is improving but the ground staff at the moment are watching the rain come down,” says Nick Knight. He also reminds us that a 20-over thrash is the minimum overs for a game and, to get that up, they’ll need to be on the field by 6:02pm.

Afternoon, there. The bad bit first? You won’t believe it… it’s raining at Old Trafford. Remove heavily, so says the world wide web.

It’s still raining @EmiratesOT 🌧

No confirmation from the match officials, but it’s looking unlikely we’ll be starting at 1pm.

If you’re coming from further afield, gates will still open at 11am with facilities open, but those that are local, keep checking our updates. pic.twitter.com/UHIAFf1oN1
