Former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram mocked the critics yet again amidst the debate over Rohit Sharma’s coin tosses in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023. Wasim Akram expressed the hope that people might now be content after India lost the toss in the final encounter.
Former Pakistani cricketer Sikandar Bakht claimed that Rohit intentionally threw the coin far away from Kiwis captain Kane Williamson. Fox Cricket reported a source from the New Zealand camp, indicating that Sharma’s coin tosses had raised concerns within their team.
Hope That People Are Satisfied After India Loss The Toss – Wasim Akram
During an appearance on a local TV channel, Wasim Akram humorously predicted that critics would continue finding new reasons to question, playfully suggesting that some might attribute the loss to the coin landing on the sponsor’s logo.
“I hope that people are satisfied after India lost the toss today. But I’m sure they will find a way to question this too. Some would say that the coin landed on the sponsor’s logo today, which is why India lost the toss,” Akram said on a local TV channel.
Rohit lost the toss in the final match against Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, November 19. The hosts were asked to bat in the final by Australian skipper Pat Cummins. Rohit managed to win just five tosses of the 11 matches in the event.
Rohit Sharma Toss It Far Away From Other Captain – Sikander Bakht
Sikander Bakht suggested that Rohit deliberately tossed the coin far from the opposition captain to prevent them from accurately verifying the outcome. Bakht stated that Rohit throws it far enough so that the opposing captain can’t see the actual result.
“Can I give you a conspiracy theory? If you see closely enough, whenever Rohit Sharma gets to flip the coin for the toss, he also tosses it far away from the other captain. It is almost far enough that the other captain never really gets to see what the actual outcome of the toss was,” Bakht said.
