While only time will tell whether Virat Kohli manages to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore to a win or not against Mumbai Indians in the first game of IPL 2021, his name has already started trending on Twitter thanks to his victory in the toss. Kohli’s record with toss is terrible and it was recently seen during the home series against England.
India hosted the visitors for 4 Tests, 5 T20Is and 3 ODIs. Out of 12 games across formats, Kohli could win only a couple of tosses. His overall record is equally poor. Overall, Kohli has won the toss in only 85 of the 200 matches that he has led India in. The India skipper’s toss win/loss ratio of 0.74 is the worst among Indian captains who have led for at least 100 games.
And Kohli came up with an interesting comment after winning the toss against Mumbai Indians on Friday (April 9). As soon as the commentator confirmed the result of the toss, Kohli called it unbelievable. He also joked that the mini-break before the IPL might have helped him finally win a toss.
“It’s unbelievable, bit of a mini-break helped me I guess to win a toss. Going to bowl first. They’re a side who likes chasing. Good chance for us to get onto the park and create some intensity. With the balance we have this year we can do both, but have to understand who you’re playing against. We understand with the depth they have they have never out of the game. Bowling first was a no-brainer for us,” he said at the toss.
Toss win sparks meme fest
Not only Virat Kohli but the result of the toss has left the fans surprised too. As soon as the result of the toss was out, the fans took to Twitter to post hilarious memes. While one fan called it a miracle, others sarcastically said that ‘IPL is always surprising’. Some fans also came up with memes inspired by movies to react to Kohli’s toss win.
Here are some of the reactions:
