Those who tuned in to the television yesterday may have caught a conversation between commentators Dean Jones and Barry Richards over India's luck with the toss this series. When the camera focussed on Ganguly sometime in the pre-lunch session, they talked about his injury. Then the topic went to being a useless tosser. In the 40 tests that Ganguly has captained India, he has won the toss on 16 occasions - 40% of the time. I think thats quite a reasonable record considering on an average you only have a 50% chance of winning the toss. Jones suggested that Ganguly should have his men fill in for him at the toss in hope of winning it [at least?!]. Richards guffawed and said that India already tried it, with Dravid in this Nagpur test, and still lost out in the toss up. Barry then had a go at Parthiv when he cautioned India against sending Parthiv out to toss, if there was a round-robin system in place for going for the toss, since he could end up dropping the coin! Quite hilarious, eh?!
