When the coin had been tossed I asked the Hampshire captain who waa batting. "Cam-bridge." he replied. "Did they win the toss?" "Yes." Mr. Spivt answered, * "If I win the toas I never put mv opponents in."
There are ocoaaions when it would be wise, perliaps, to put the other side in first, but on the whole Mr. Sprot's policy is probably the mom judioioqa.
