When India captain Rohit Sharma and New Zealand captain Tom Latham came out for the toss a strange but funny incident happened. Rohit flipped the coin and the Kiwi skipper called for ‘heads’, the coin came down as ‘tails’ and India won the toss.

However, the India captain wasn’t ready for his decision and he was simply standing while scratching his head in embarrassment. The turn of events triggered laughter among the dignitaries present at the toss, including Tom Latham and match referee Javagal Srinath. Also, Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammed Siraj, who were watching from behind, couldn’t stop laughing.

Speaking at the toss, Rohit said that he forgot the toss decision because of a lot of discussions in the dressing room about it. He elaborated:

I forgot what we wanted to do, had plenty of discussions with the team about the toss decision, just wanted to challenge ourselves under difficult conditions, but we’ll bowl first. Was a good test for us, knowing that the wicket will get better to bat on and that was the challenge in front of us. 

’Bracewell batted well, but we bowled well in the end and won the game. There was a bit of dew during the practice sessions, but we’ve heard from the curator that it will not play a role on game days. We batted first in Hyderabad, we wanted to bowl first here, same team.”
