Default If we win the toss, what should we choose?

Now the series is about to begin, and I think this is the time to discuss about toss. If we win the toss, then what should we choose? I think we must choose batting. Since the condition is hot and humud, batting during the second innings will become harder. Also after fielding, players lose their energy and temperament to bat with a cautious mind in the second innings.

The choice is obvious - bat first. Besides the factors BD-Shardul said, the pitch is also believed to be deteriorating in the second innings.

We should choose to visit Pagla-r Baba-r Mazaar and seek his blessings. Pagla-r Baba-r Mazarer Pani Purabo.

Wouldn't batting first would look like arrogance? Afterall, some of us labeled Dravid with that from the March 17th match.

Shouldn't we do that before the toss so that we win the toss?

Also can we put some color coded marks on the field for our Captain? Better yet instruct the players to take the following 9 spots according to:

red: after a wicket fall, to create pressure
green: powerplay
yellow: non pressure situation


And BC members please give a cell phone to bashar (lets raise funds funds if necessary), and SMS or call him during the match, specially to help him out during fielding. Just want to minimize the huge burden of captaincy for him. He is already under pressure for all kinds of criticism from all you BC fans and me. Indication is already evident in his poor show in the practice match. Getting out by softest of dismissial: caught and bowled.

Note to Bashar: please dont mind our criticsm and focus on your batting already, we from the BC, will take care of the fielding setting and bowling change (and even toss if you want). And if you are smiling all the time due to some advertising contract with grameenphone or something, just continue, afterall smile ensures long life.

Why worry about seeking blessing to win the toss when we may as well seek the blessing to win the match ?
