The toss doesn't seem to have too much bearing in the result of the game: in the last 12 matches which have produced a decisive result, only six times has the team winning the toss gone on to win the Test. The Australians have been lucky with the toss too at this ground, calling wrongly only once in the last seven tries. Shane Warne has an excellent record here - 13 wickets at 22.23 - but Lord's has generally been unfriendly to spinners. Since 2001, spinners have only taken 36 out of 261 wickets, at an average of more than 50. Going by the recent record here, Matthew Hayden, Adam Gilchrist, Marcus Trescothick and Andrew Strauss will score more runs than the likes of Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke. As the table below shows, left-handers have been far more prolific at this ground over the last four years. However, some of that discrepancy could also be explained by the fact that more tail-enders bat right-handed than left.
