We're starting at 11.30 tomorrow morning with an extended break to watch the football.

What's best under those circumstances, batting or bowling first... Hmmm ???

We're going for 0900, same question.

I'm thinking bat. People might be carefree later on...

i just wrote this on the other thread.......

"The thing i find most interesting about this is the leagues/clubs that have said they are going to stop for the football and have an extended tea break, are they -

a) starting at a time so extended tea is half way through/during the 2nd innings?
b) reduced the overs enough so that you will be finished by 8ish?

i say this because you can't bank on the game not going to penalties because you aren't going to be able to pull wild horses away from the game if it goes to extra time and penalties, then the game isn't finishing till approx 5.45pm.... so batting 2nd becomes a real disadvantage due to light etc...."

....definitely bat 1st
