WATCH : Faf amusing Cummins with tales of toss shenanigans


With five defeats in six matches, the Royal Challengers Bengaluru were in dire need of a morale-boosting win. Enduring four consecutive losses, the team faced a daunting task against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. Prior to the crucial toss, the captains engaged in an animated conversation.

Thirty minutes before the match, Cummins attentively listened to the RCB skipper’s words. The gestures between the players suggested an intriguing discussion about the coin toss rituals and procedures.

At one point, Faf mimicked spinning the coin and indicated it falling behind before virtually picking it up. The Twitterverse erupted as clips of the interaction between these two prominent figures circulated widely on social media.

RCB approached the match without a dedicated spinner in their lineup. Opting for Will Jacks’ offspin when faced with two left-handed openers, they conceded 32 runs off his three overs. The pace quartet of Topley, Dayal, Ferguson, and Vyshak bore the brunt, leaking 137 runs in ten overs.

In response, du Plessis turned to the occasional left-arm spin of Mahipal Lomror upon seeing two right-handed batsmen at the crease. The outcome? Two sixes and three wides outside off, pushing SRH to 189 for 2 after 14 overs.
