And game the play …

UNSW maths and game theory researcher Haris Aziz suggest winning the toss gives a cricket team such an unfair advantage that to balance things out the losing captain should get to put a price on it. Good batting wicket that will turn? The loser could suggest the first 100 runs scored by the team that gets to bat first don’t count, alternatively the winner could bowl first and get 100 runs credited when they bat. Endless entertainment for stats whizzes.
