New Delhi: The England and Wales cricket Board (ECB) is contemplating to scrap the toss in County Championship Division Two matches next season.

According to a report in the BBC, the ECB's executive board will discuss the plan on Thursday after it was recommended by its cricket committee.

The away team will decided whether to bat, bowl or still have a toss if the pitch condition was uncertain.

The toss will remain in County Championship Division One and domestic limited-overs cricket.

Earlier, cricketing legends Steve Waugh, Michael Holding and Ricky Ponting all backed the idea of getting rid of the toss even in Test cricket.
