21.35BST I'm afraid the match has been called off. It's simply too wet, so the series remains level at 0-0. England can thank their lucky stars, not to mention the Cardiff clouds; Pakistan completely outplayed them today and, if anything, it's a moral victory for them. Only questions remain for England - they simply don't know their best lineup, and are increasingly lacking in confidence with the bat. Join us on Saturday for the second one-dayer from Lord's, London, which we hope will be drier. Until then, it's goodnight.

21.30BST Still no news folks. In the meantime, chance your arm (and play your shots) in our latest caption competition. Note: they still need to complete 20 overs to force a result which, at this stage, is looking unlikely. And they need to be back on the field within 20 minutes (at 21.50BST) otherwise there won't be enough time.

So it's all thoroughly wet out there and we really can't tell you any more just yet. We will, though, as soon as we know more. In the meantime, did you hear about the water bomb which stopped play in Blackpool, Lancashire today? Amuse yourselves on the site, and we'll have some updates for you shortly.

So the umpires are having a chat. The rain continues to be persistent and I'm not convinced it's fair for England to play - the conditions are so wet and slippery. And they're coming off - the rain is now really coming down in bucket-loads. That's the sensible decision to make. Heavy rain now

Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, excellent ball to finish the over, cutting the batsman in half

Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR runs, shot! Smacked off the back foot behind square, in the air, and it torpedoes for four

Poor old Darren. He's going to go ballistic in a minute

Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR runs, good bouncer from Gough, the batsman gets a top edge but it sails over the wicketkeeper and down for four
6.3
0
Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, driven (clunked) off the back foot

Still drizzling...it really is heavily drizzling, if that isn't a contradiction in terms

6.2

Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, too straight from Gough, worked to square leg but there's no run on offer

Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, driven without timing into the covers
