We will celebrate Cheteshwar Pujara’s third consecutive hundred glorify Ravichandran Ashwin’s rise as a genuine all-rounder run out of plaudits to describe Kohli These have all contributed greatly to India’s recent domination But like the dew that comes and goes unnoticed on a cool summer morning one other contributor has quietly flown under the radar Virat Kohli congratulates Ravichandran Ashwin after victory over England AFP The toss In the last nine Tests at home India have won an improbable eight tosses starting with the series against South Africa The one they lost was in Rajkot where they had to bat last for the first time at home since the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2012-13 It was also the first time they batted last since the perceptible unwritten change in approach towards home advantage: Indian pitches must turn earlier rather than later The Indian in me celebrated the win in Vizag But the cricketer in me cringed as I saw the visitors having to bat second and last after India had made merry in the best of the batting conditions This is to take nothing away from the players of both teams India applied themselves brilliantly with both bat and ball and England could have benefitted from a more positive approach in both their digs The team that played better won But let’s not pretend they didn’t have a head start The institution of the toss has been almost immutable as integral to sports as a ball is It’s primary role is to maintain fair play to allow both teams equal chance of choosing In this it has historically succeeded It’s secondary role is to decide factors that should be arbitrary; like which side of the field a team chooses which later changes at half time But in cricket this decision is far from arbitrary On wickets that are likely to change in nature as the game progresses the toss presents a significant advantage to the winning team in that they can make the best of the conditions before they change In India that usually means batting first In New Zealand and England it could mean inserting the opposition and only having to bat once the wicket has flattened out Ironically the toss ends up doing the exact thing it is meant to prevent: handing one team an unfair advantage The conundrum is not limited to the longer form In ODI cricket as well especially in day -night matches where dew is a factor conditions in the two halves are often so foreign you would be forgiven if you thought it was a different match Of course it is up to the players to capitalise on the advantage And there are well known instances of that not happening Think back to the World Cup final in 2003 where an overeager Zaheer Khan and an underwhelming Javagal Srinath wasted good bowling conditions allowing Australia to bat India out of the game Which brings us again to the complicated question of what is a good wicket The strip at Vizag lasted five days and so would be considered ‘good’ but it gave the team batting first a decidedly warmer welcome The infamous Nagpur wicket pejoratively rated ‘poor’ by the ICC (a decision I thought smacked of ‘batter’s game mindset’) could be said to be fairer Consider this: both teams batted on the first day the ball was turning just as much for both sets of bowlers since they took almost adjacent turns bowling With both teams playing in equal conditions the situation was a true test of skill and India came out well on top because they had better spinners Arguably no other sport is as influenced by the condition of the playing surface as Test cricket is Add to that the uncertainty and influence of the toss and you have a cocktail of suspense drama and action It is part of the je ne sais quoi that makes Test cricket enchanting and unparalleled But the same factors also sometimes make it deleteriously unfair County cricket has done away with tosses although for different reasons and had some success in that experiment Is it worth trying out in Tests Steve Waugh Michael Holding and Ricky Ponting think so It is a slippery path to go down though Giving the visiting team the option to choose whether to bat or bowl as the stalwart trio have suggested will leave no incentive for home teams to prepare pitches that suit them Instead of having a 50-50 chance of exploiting home conditions that chance will reduce to almost zero The last two years has seen some superb and gripping Test cricket mostly due to conditions that challenge the visiting team The fun has just begun let’s not be hasty to bash the bowlers party (God knows they don’t get many) Writer Liam Cromar’s suggestion that the side that loses the toss be allowed one change in their playing XI is a good middle ground But hypothetical questions get only hypothetical answers said American singer and activist Joan Baez A more worrying very real problem is the fact that so few people are talking about this “The more you attribute to randomness the less can be attributed to skill” wrote Worcestershire cricketer Jack Shantry in his debut as a writer Football tennis and hockey all ensure that players swap sides at fixed times so as to reduce this randomness In cricket not only do we have no such system but most people won’t even realise that this randomness exists Across both longer formats we often have an imbalance and an unfairness created by less than uniform conditions which have been repeated so often over the decades we hardly give them a second glance The Illusory Truth Effect has descended on our game like a snow so fine you won’t even feel it Till it buries you Nathan Leamon the England team analyst pointed out in a Nightwatchman essay recently that since 1990 winning the toss has resulted in 401 wins and 388 losses The difference is not great enough to cause us to ruffle our feathers However on wickets the likes of which we are seeing in India I would bet on that gap increasing as the sample size gets bigger So I look forward to the rest of this series Not just for the cricket which promises to be excellent but also because probability demands that India will lose a toss sooner rather than later If that happens on a pitch that is not as accommodating (for batting) as the one in Rajkot it should help us decode whether it is home advantage or toss advantage ?
