‘Trust Kohli’s Bad Luck’ Fans To Neesham After He Complains About NZ Losing 4th Toss

BUY-SELL | HELP WANTED | MATRIMONIAL

As India took on New Zealand in the first Test in Kanpur without several first-choice players, the  fans and experts found themselves in a dilemma whether to be happy with the youngsters getting a chance or be worried about the absence of some of the star players.

Over the next five days, we will get to know if their absence has any adverse impact on the team’s performance or if the youngsters like Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer grab the opportunities with both hands and fill in their boots perfectly.

Even if they do justify their selection, most fans are definitely going to be missing India’s regular Test skipper but only for his batting skills, nothing else because everything else has been taken good care of in his absence. 

With Virat Kohli not walking out for the toss in the last couple of weeks, it seems like India’s bad luck has faded away and winning the toss isn’t an anomaly anymore. The fact that the hosts have won four tosses in a row in the last couple of weeks, has left everyone amazed, including former India fast bowlers Zaheer Khan and New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham.

Rohit Sharma won the toss on all three occasions in the T20I series and now stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane () has won the toss in the opening Test.

Taking to the micro-blogging site, the former left-arm pacer said that he still couldn’t believe that India won three out of three tosses in the recent series. Sharing a light-hearted message he joked if the coins had some kind of secret chip inside them.

Still can’t believe India won three out of three tosses in the recent series. Did the coins have a secret chip, just like the currency notes?

Just kidding, can you recall more such rare moments?

PS: Only Cricketers can reply #Rario

“Still can’t believe India won three out of three tosses in the recent series. Did the coins have a secret chip, just like the currency notes? Just kidding, can you recall more such rare moments? PS: Only Cricketers can reply,” Zaheer Khan tweeted.

Can somebody take a closer look at those coins please? #INDvNZ

After the Blackcaps lost their fourth consecutive toss on the ongoing tour, a disappointed Neesham tweeted: “Can somebody take a closer look at those coins please?”. 

The Indian fans, who had been at the receiving end of such bad luck for a long time, consoled the Kiwi all-rounder by saying that don’t worry, Kohli will return in the next match and with that India’s good fortune will be over.

Virat’s coming back for the 2nd Test, so you’ll win the next toss don’t worry!!

After winning three back-to-back tosses, the Rohit Sharma-led side completed a series whitewash over the Kiwis and Rahane would be hoping that he continues the same trend.
