India’s new T20I skipper Rohit Sharma, though, has inherited from Virat Kohli but seems like he has left the former skipper’s awful luck with the toss behind him. Virat Kohli’s toss record hasn’t been so good. He has lost the toss more often than not. Time and Again, Virat Kohli has been left disappointed with his luck with the toss.
However, the new skipper Rohit Sharma seems to be very lucky with the toss. Tonight, it was for the third consecutive time, when Indian skipper Rohit Sharma walked out for the toss and won it. Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat against New Zealand in the ongoing 3rd t20I match in Kolkata.
This match marks the returns of Yuzvendra Chahal and Ishan Kishan into the playing XI. Speaking at the toss, Rohit said:
“Pitch looks a little sticky and we want to challenge ourselves as a batting unit. We gotta try various things and this is one of them. We want to put runs on the board and give the new set of bowlers a target to defend,”
Team India made two changes, “We are very clear as to what we want to do that’s why Ishan has to wait for his opportunity, Chahal as well, he has been a champion bowler for us.” Rohit said.
Meanwhile, as Rohit won his third toss in a line, fans on social media started trolling the Indian skipper left, right and center. There were many who came up with hilarious memes and jokes, while reacting to the same.
