'Much focus has been, and will remain on, the absence of Steven Smith and David Warner. However, without their big three of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood because of a variety of injuries, Australia have arrived with a group of pace bowlers - Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jhye Richardson, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis and the uncapped Michael Neser - who have just 35 ODI appearances between them. They will be supplemented by Nathan Lyon (13 ODIs) and Ashton Agar (4 ODIs)'

Says a lot about how the game has changed that England, the strongest side over the past two years, don't have a single bowler averaging below 30 or an e/r below 5.

Last 2 years Starc 23.23 5.04, Cummins 31.90 5.15, Hazelwood 24.16 4.76.

Looking forward to seeing these new bowlers against England's batting line up. Probably end up with an economy of 6.

Interesting that the Aussies have been largely forced to go with a T20 bowling line up - didn't work out very well for them in the winter.

I shall be having a day and night out in Cardiff for the 2nd ODI, hoping for a good day's entertainment.

Still seems odd to be optimistic about an England ODI series against Australia, especially with Woakes and Stokes missing but you’d have to expect a bit of a caning for their bowling line up and their batting is pretty weak without Warner and Smith too.

Smith was a weakness for them in the Winter, there's no room in the current ODI climate for a Trott like 50 (there never should have been anyway).

I presume they've finally picked Maxwell, he does at least have the ability to change the course of a match.

England to bowl first against Scotland today. No real surprises in the XI, as England continue with Roy and JB up front, Hales at 3.

Can we go back to the time, only a few years ago, when it was deemed unnecessary to have national anthems before cricket games? Or will we soon have New Zealand doing the haka whenever they play?

Wood again struggling to generate any pace (84-86mph). If England aren’t going to fast-track Archer they probably need to start picking someone with pace sooner rather than later. Given that J Overton is permanently injured and Saqib Mahmood has disappeared off the face of the earth I would suggest the only option is Stone.

Yup. Surely even without Woakes we can manage better than Willey and Wood? Are they really the best we can field? Look at the Royal London figures and I’ll bet there are a good few better, and England qualified under the age of 30.

Willey bowling pies.

Wood not bowling fast, when will this myth cease?

Sky exaggerating this start. Anyone would think Scotland had 50 inside 5 overs and not 8.

England strip rather garish. why do they need 2nd strips in cricket? One side bowls and the other bats. Both sides wearing white was never a problem.

At least Willey offers a little if there's a bit of swing (not today though). How many of Wood's deliveries would ever go on to hit the stumps? Or even a set of stumps sat on top of the normal ones?

Shocking review from England. It never looked out in a million years.

What an appalling review.

Why would you be desperate for the wicket so early with Cross and Coetzee batting? They’re not Kohli and Sharma.

Itís baffling isnít it? Quite aside from the fact he is unable to bowl with sustained pace his numbers in all forms of international cricket are absolutely appalling.

Someone loves him, apart from his Mum.

I’m biased but Jake Ball has more promise (and does more with the ball) yet has received only a fraction of the opportunity Wood has. I suppose it’s that magic ability to bowl 90 mph, allegedly.

Thatís a bit of a knee jerk. Nobody said they had the best attack in the world (far from it) and the opening bowlers arenít in the strongest XI.

On the occasions I’ve seen Ball bowl well he has bowled just as quickly as Wood, plus he does more with the ball (as you say) and he has better variations.
