Wait, you're telling me that a random coin toss to decide the order of whether you do your run-making in the first half of the game or second half of the game is a consequential factor in a 3 hour version of cricket held in desert venues that rarely host cricket!!?? #NZvAUS
A simple rule change that can somewhat mitigate the very obviously heavy impact a toss has on ICC trophy results would be to allow teams to finalize their XIs after the toss instead of before it.

No one has ever explained to me why teams need to be frozen before the toss.
Even in test matches. Let teams choose their XIs after the toss. It'll just result in better selections for both teams. What exactly is being gained by continuing to freeze teams before toss, when so much can be gained by changing that random rule?
