This is a common issue and I ran into this when I was simulating my own tournament. Here is what I did to make it fair.I don't understand what's going on with the simulations, seems like batting second almost guarantees a win
1. Make the pitch wear speed fast and make the pitch hard/normal.
2. Reduce the bonus for aggresive shots.
3. Use dry pitches.
All these factors make the 1st innings score big and reduces the advantage for the chasing team.
Unfortunately, in a tournament all these changes might not be possible to make and even if you do make these changes, the advantage is still tilted towards the chasing team
