One thing I fail to understand is the answer the cricket experts give to the question:
What do you think should be the team’s strategy?
Invariably, the answer is to put up as many runs as they can on the board, and then take as many wickets as they can.
I thought that was the whole point of the game, no?
I always assumed that strategy was more related to how. I would have expected something about whether it’s better to bat first or bowl first depending on the history of the pitch, which bowlers ought to be used first, etc. But then, hey, what do I know?
So what’s your exit strategy? 🙂
