From Lawrence Booth’s Spin:
But the Spin is concerned that cricket-lovers the world over are about to be deprived of the richest chapter yet in the – for some reason – unwritten history of tossing. Because if England plump for Paul Collingwood ahead of Kevin Pietersen to lead their one-day side, it means we will have to foresake the dream pairing of Pietersen and Chris Gayle. Imagine the fun. The toss would never take place on time, the coin would get lost in all the bling, and the polite handshake would degenerate into an orgy of fist-pumping and high-fives. It’s high time the England and Wales Cricket Board saw sense.
