#T20WorldCupFinal Explains Why Toss Was So Important During The Tournament
The toss played an extremely important role and provided an unfair advantage throughout the tournament to teams bowling first. Teams batting first owing to the slow nature of the wickets struggled to score anything over 175 runs for most part of the tournament which regularly (owing to dew factor that came into play during the second innings) proved to be 25 runs less than what was defendable.
