Re: Somerset v Lancs CC1 - The Farmer speaks....

I wonder if Tom's decision to make Lancs bat again shows a measure of self-awareness along the lines of 'If we were to bat again, I might be too conservative and it might cost us,' or whether it is more reflective of the fact that we think the track may get better rather than worse?

I don't think it can just be a questionable forecast because that seemed to be all but ignored when it came to the calculations about when to declare at Edgbaston (unless, perhaps Tom had access to a special forecast that was highly trusted and not publicly available which said that the final day would be largely fine).
