1.30pm Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live ball-by-ball coverage of the first ODI between England and South Africa at the Wanderers. I'm Andrew Miller, and I'll be joined at various stages today by my colleagues Gnasher McGlashan and our new London recruit Sahil Dutta.

Alas, the news from the ground is not good at present. The teams were forced to practice indoors on Wednesday after heavy rain left large puddles on the outfield, and there has been more of the same so far today.

The game was due to get underway in roughly an hour's time, but already we have got a significant delay in prospect, with a pitch inspection scheduled for 3pm (1300 GMT)

In other news, Kent's offspinner James Tredwell is being touted for a first cap after being called up as cover for the injured Graeme Swann, while Andrew Strauss is steadfastly refusing to get drawn into any mindgames, despite the best efforts of Mickey Arthur and Graeme Smith to get a rise out of him.

"A lot has been said, but not by me," said Strauss on the eve of the match. "We've always refrained from making big comments about the opposition because the world is round and these things can come back to haunt you pretty quickly." So there.

So Chris, You'd be happy lumping on SA at 1.45 if they lost the toss and batted 1st on a damp pitch with Eng having the benefit of D/L chasing?

maybe another 20/20?

1.47 Lix ;)

And yeah, my strategy works well for me. Agressively backing my hunches then trading in play if necessary :)

Fair enough. I've laid tons at 1.45. Free-ish lay if ever there was one with a shortened game on the cards.
