CWC 2015 - Did England Lose Match At The Toss v Australia?

England won a great toss but chose to field. Did they lose the game there?

#EoinMorgan mentioned at the toss that he'd like to exploit overnight moisture at the #MCG early and inserted Australia in. Was it a fatal mistake? Big game, Tournament opener ... was it not a better idea to bat first and put runs on the board?

#GeorgeBailey was very happy to lose the toss and still get his choice - bat first. He mentioned the pitch would be great throughout and it did play true throughout the game.

Morgan's decision would have been vindicated greatly, if Aaron Finch would not have been dropped in the very first over on nought. He went on to make 135. Huge dent...

The specially minted #coin for the match toss is beautiful though.
