India and England are currently involved in the third and final ODI of the three-match series in Pune. The series is locked at 1-1 and just like T20Is, it has all come down to the decider. Toss has also played a crucial role so far on this England’s tour of India and the hosts’ skipper Virat Kohli‘s poor record at the toss continued even in the last ODI.

Chasing has been the template in the white-ball leg of this series and though India won three matches (two T20Is and first ODI) defending a score, England haven’t budged and continued to opt to bowl. They showed their strength with the bat in the second game as it was a six-hitting fest. A total of 34 sixes were hit in the game with the visitors smacking 20 alone.

Hence, with the series up for grabs, it was important for India that they win the toss and chase down a score on a flat MCA Stadium pitch in Pune. But once Jos Buttler called it correctly, there were smiles all around as Virat Kohli lost it again and as expected had to bat first.

Even Kohli admitted that the toss has gone out of his control right now. “I would’ve bowled first again, but it seems like the toss is completely out of my control right now,” he said.

Kohli and toss – A story to forget

Not that Virat Kohli won many tosses earlier. In the ongoing ODI series, he has lost all the tosses while in the Test and T20I series, the 32-year-old won the toss only twice. Rather in the last 12 ODIs, Kohli has won the toss only twice and lost it on 10 occasions.

Virat Kohli is also playing his 200th international match as captain and in terms of toss record, he has lost it 115 times and won 85 times. Having said that, the Indian captain prides on going against the odds and winning the match and the Indian team has done it so many times now. Meanwhile, Twitter was busy trolling Kohli for not winning the toss when needed the most.
