Default If we win the toss?

Bat first or bowl?

I say bat again, show them we're not afraid of the pitch.

I reaf in Jamaican paper that groundsman says Pitch will be more batting friendly from day 2... tough call for Suman.

Bat first and hope for pitch deteriation later. Most importantly, survive the morning session.

I think BD may choose to field first. With all these media, bouncy wicket and Lara pressure- taking field first is a safer option

Like one cricket great once said:

If Bashar wins the toss, he should bat.

If he has doubts, he should think very hard, then bat.

If others tell him to field, he should listen to their arguments, give it some consideration, then bat.

With this West Indian team, winning the toss should be a great opportunity to demoralize them by batting. They had to toil for so long in the last test, that if they have to field first again, it will be bad for thier temperament.

I hope we win the toss.
