Champions Trophy - Bat Second To Come First

According to this piece, S Rajesh has come up with a few statistics to prove Shane Bond is a match winner. Well we knew it already, this is the actual evidence - for the lawyer in you.

More importantly, Rajesh has also performed an analysis on whether to bat or bowl first in order to win a day/night match in India. Interesting facts which you should read. In summary, the team bowling first just has the edge, in terms of winning more matches since the turn of the century.

We'll just have to wait and see whether that trend is progressed or abolished over the coming weeks.

PS. Is it just me or have we been waiting far too long for the real action to start? All I've been reading over the last few weeks is mere hype. Someone just cut the crap. Please.
