    Bad decision IMO.

    It's better to bat first when you're heavily reliant on your top order. I don't want any more pressure on the middle order than there already is.

    Is surely primarily to protect against DRS screwage

    you mean Duckworth Lewis?

    I don't think it screws people tbh.

    Plus if it rains there's a high chance it'll have a negative effect on our swing bowlers.

    Well it can amplify what's already happening, so if you're a little behind the asking rate and there's another rain break, you're suddenly a lot behind the rate.

    Surprisingly there is a little swing so far, despite the wind.

    Yes, generally adjusted targets favour the team batting second. Where the main benefit is it is a lot easier to bat in such a way to remain ahead of the D/L target if you think rain's going to wipe things out at any moment. Basically if you keep wickets in hand you're in a great position.

    For instance if you're only 1 wicket down after 20 overs, whatever your score is, multiply it by ~3.5461. So 100-1 after 20 translates to a 50 over score of 354.6 (can't remember how it works with rounding and cba looking it up)

    There is no point in Roy playing like this. He is just ruining a great start from Hales. Hit the ball or **** off and let Root in.
