The toss is perhaps one of the most important events in a cricket match, especially in T20 cricket, where teams which choose to bowl first often gain a major advantage.
It would be accurate to claim that the toss has the power to change the outcome of the game. The two competing teams in cricket alternate who gets to bat and field. The toss winner gets to decide whether to field or bat.
The match referee, an announcer, and occasionally a mascot gather in the middle of the field where the two captains of the competing teams will throw a coin. The coin is given to the captain of the team competing at their home field, or a proxy home field. Heads or tails will be called by the other captain. The side of the coin that is facing up when it is tossed and lands on the ground is known as the result of the coin. The away captain wins the toss and gets to choose whether to field or bat if the outcome supports his prediction. Otherwise, the opposite captain takes the victory.
But how did the toss come to be such a significant event? This is due to the fact that winning the toss may really prove to be highly advantageous. Winning the toss can assist a team in choosing the conditions in which they will bat or field because, as is well known, the pitch conditions and external factors such as dew, wind direction, lights, etc. fluctuate throughout the game.
Additionally, in T20s, chasing a score rather than assessing the situation and setting a target has proven to be much more advantageous.
Why is toss important in the IPL?
The T20 format is used for the IPL. Winning the toss doesn’t become as crucial as it does in Test cricket, despite the fact that the format is not lengthy enough to allow the pitch conditions to vary significantly. Winning the toss, though, allows certain teams to play to their advantages.
For instance, a club that has a strong batting lineup and a reputation for successful run chases would choose to win the toss and bat second. Playing in a team’s comfort zone is beneficial. The toss winner will again prefer to bat second in such situations if the dew factor enters the game in the latter stages.
Nonetheless, captains who win the toss prefer to bat first in a day game on a scorching summer afternoon so that their fielders won’t have to work too hard in the oppressive heat and rays. Hence, while a victory in the IPL is not guaranteed by winning the toss, it is made a little bit more likely and attainable.
