Fastest to 50 Puzzle

Fastest to 50 Puzzle
Two players are playing a time pass game. They decide to take turns and out integers. The first person to call out “50” wins keeping in mind the following rules:
1. The person starting first should call out the number between 1 to 10 (inclusive)
2. The next player should call out a new number which must exceed the most recent number called by at least one and by no more than 10.

Do you want to go first, and if so, what is your strategy?
