22:50 So a day of disappointment in Leeds today for both the players and fans, hopefully there will be something to cheer about on Sunday as the series moves to Old Trafford for the 2nd ODI. We will have live coverage as always, hope you can join us. Cheers.
22:40 And finally the inevitable news has come through that the match has been abandoned.
22:07 The umpires have inspected conditions, as the rain continues to fall. They have called lunch and the umpires will inspect again in half an hour.
21:04 It continues to rain at Headingley. The umpires inspected conditions a short while ago but not a lot has changed in the past couple hours. They will inspect again at 1pm local time, about an hour from now.
20:11 No improvement of the weather situation as yet. The minimum amount of overs for an ODI is 20, so the cut-off time to start a match today is 3:22pm local time (12:22am AEST).
19:22 The start is now officially delayed. It's still raining and there is increasing surface water on the outfield. Looks like a long evening of waiting around. Will update with any news when it comes to hand.
18:51 Unfortunately the news is not good for cricket fans, it is currently raining heavily at the ground and has been doing so all morning. There is no chance of starting on time, and it's hard to say when or even if we will get any play today.
18:48 Hello and welcome to the 1st ODI between England and Australia from Headingley, Leeds.


Umpires: Aleem Dar (PAK), Illingworth, RK (ENG)
