Does anybody understand why India elected to field this morning? They
and Australia are much better at setting a target than chasing one, and
I'm sure that this factor outweighs any swing advantage possibly gained
by the atmospheric conditions in the earlier part of the day. In any
case, Australia are set to make a decent total and I don't like India's
chances of reaching it, even with their batsmen.
Alec Stewart made a similar decision to field against India last week,
which Allan Donald amongst others thought was plain daft (source :
interview with BBC).
