Toss of one-off T20I

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has tried their best to clear the woes regarding the toss in the one-off T20 international in Colombo between India and Sri Lanka. In the middle of the controversy, SLC tweeted a video of the incident and said that match referee Andy Pycroft took the correct call.

“#SLvInd T20I: Match Referee Andy PYCROFT called it correctly – “Heads India”, SLC wrote on twitter.

However, social media did not find that the confusion was over as they need to edit and enhance the voice and yet failing to clear the confusion. Earlier, the controversy began after a video on YouTube raised doubts over who won the toss in one-off T20I.

Murali Karthik was the presenter and Andy Pycroft was the match referee. Sri Lanka captain Upul Tharanga tossed the coin in the air and Kohli called ‘Heads’. Pycroft took a look at the coin after it fell and said “Tails, India” despite the fact that Kohli had called ‘heads’. Besides all that, Karthik turned around and said, “Heads it is.” Judging from his body language, Pycroft seemed to have recognized that something was wrong in the toss but none of the others took notice and Karthik went ahead to speak with Kohli.
