Winning the Toss when playing cricket is giving you the edge over your opponent some say at least fifty runs on the board. and the present test and one-day matches have proven that 100%...
I am not surprised the Indian cricket team has achieved top rankings worldwide compared to the other thirteen international cricketing nations. even giving a 50 pe discount on half its population being dirt poor the remaining population is 45 million larger than the Aus, Eng, Paki,
NZ, Sri Lank,.B Desh, S Africa.Scotland, West Indies, Netherlands, Ireland, Afghani, and Zimbabwe
Indians outnumber Australians by 59 to one. and and the population poor kiwis by250 to one.
I am old enough to remember watching the last day of play of the 4th day in a five-day scheduled test between ENG and AUS at the Oval In Surrey played between Aug 20 and 25 inclusive, in 1938 when I was a twelve-year-old boy who paid two shillings to sit on the grass. England won by an innings and 579 runs. BTW there was a rest day on Sundays back then.
VEST.... Back soon.

Seventy-seven years ago I Vest joined the British Royal Navy. After twenty-four and a half years I retired on an indexed pension for the past Fifty two and a half years.. There were times when my investment was in doubt due to times of conflict. but if I were born again, I would never take the gamble but take a safe option. Other than that, Nothing is often a good thing to say, and always a clever thing to say. The saving of man is the holding of his tongue. and a little bit of luck.
Vest Back Soon.
Vest Back Soon.
