    Home skipper tosses, away skipper calls winner decides what to do always has been as far as I'm concerned.
    Never ceases to amaze me that captains haven't thought it through what to do if they win!
    Never seem to consider weather forecast, sun angle, pitch conditions.
    Of course you do get this odd smart @rse who knows the correct procedure and says we'll kick form this end!

    It isn't customary to start a sentence with a full stop.

    Too true.

    Welsh captain is like, “it’s for us? We will kick off then.”
    English captain says “I will let you know in 5 minutes, alright?”
    Ref: Doh, that’s fine brains. (Going to ask your Mum, what she thinks you should do, are ya?)

    I've had to toss too many socks due to the writing utensil causing a hole, and I've lost count of the number of times I've lost my scorepad or a card while running (I keep the YC in the left, so I make sure to grab the right card).
