Default \"Nobody in their right mind chooses to bat under lights\"

"Nobody in their right mind chooses to bat under lights"


http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/4122430.stm

This is what Jonathon Agnew says about batting under light.

"We also had a plan to bowl first at Trent Bridge against England and I'm relieved that I called the coin correctly. The information we gathered is that at Trent Bridge the ball does a bit in the first hour. But we bowled badly in the first 15 overs," Bashar said.

So he won the toss yet wanted to bat under the light? I was in the impression that he lossed the toss yet again!

Tresco won the toss. But, the point is even if Bashar had won it, our team would be still batting under light.

I am just wondering how dumb was he in thinking there will be extra assistance from the pitch middle of a warm day.

My god! I hope he does not win the toss tomorrow. In that way he won't be making a bad choice!
