Also, here's the day-one view of our chief cricket columnist, Malcolm Knox: Waiting for Watto, a masterpiece eight years in the making.
There's been some rain around in London, but expectations are if it stays dry from here we'll start on time at 11am local time (8pm AEST).
A start on schedule could be optimistic, sadly...

Yep, officially a rain delay now.
Overly pessimistic to be already doing a rain dance, eh lads?
Update? No update. Still rainin'.
Some progress at The Oval - sorta. Lunch has been brought forward half an hour, to 12.30pm (9.30pm AEST).
Richie K, just hangin' out.
