Toss has impact on T20 Cricket matches
IT seems all captains who win the toss in the BBL decide to field first.
Most captains feel they can chase down any score and that the dew from the evening air adds more pace to the wicket with the ball coming onto the bat better for the batting striker.
It is only when the team fielding second can get the required run-rate more than two runs a ball that the team fielding second gets control of the game.
Wade a minute
TASMANIAN wicketkeeper Matthew Wade must feel like the unluckiest keeper in Australia.
Last season Wade started the season as his state's number one keeper only to have Tim Paine leapfrog him to the baggy green and Aussie captaincy.
This season the Tassie reserve keeper Ben McDermott has made the one-day side and fellow back-up keeper Jake Doran has been selected in the Cricket Australia XI over Wade this week. Maybe making Wade deputy is the new secret to Aussie selection.
My horse tip for Saturday in Sydney is for the Chris Waller trained Paret.
