India put back their dismal 20-20 World Cup performance behind and bounced back by winning the three-match T20I series 3-0. Rohit Sharma began his full-time captaincy tenure with a bang. He led from the front and scored 159 runs. Not only did India win the match by convincing margins, but it also managed to win three back-to-back tosses. Over the past year so, under Kohli’s leadership, winning tosses have been a nightmare for India.
Seeing Rohit win hat trick of tosses was heartening to see for the onlookers. Former India pacer Zaheer Khan took to Twitter and said, “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”

Wasim Jaffer, who is known to have fan banters with cricketers was quick to respond to Zaheer and said, winning three tosses is rare, but not as rare as him having better bowling figures than Zaheer in a Test match. Jaffer was talking about an old match, where he managed to pick two wickets in 11 overs. Zaheer bowled a lot of overs compared to Jaffer but ended up taking only two wickets.

The former fast bowler though was not ready to take things lying down. He hit back at Jaffer strongly and shared a scorecard of the old Test match where Zaheer managed to outscore the former Mumbai batter in both innings. The duo’s lighthearted banter was enjoyed by a lot of cricketers. Both the cricketers’ witty, and hilarious side was evident in the way they were going at each other.
