7.45pm: Well, it was wet and it was murky but England have begun the Second Age of Peter Moores without any slips. Not the most satisfactory way for an ODI to be played, finishing with a soggy 20-over slog some 10 hours after it was supposed to begin; but England will take their positives as they find them, I'm sure. Don't think there are too many sage pronouncements to be made, other than Ian Bell played nicely and the bowlers ticked the boxes in avoiding an upset. Credit to Scotland for showing some grit and, particularly, to the groundstaff and umpires for getting any sort of game in. We'll be back for more when the Sri Lanka series starts in 11 days' time. Go tell your friends - cricket is back and so are England. Cheerio
