IPL 2021: Sanju Samson takes toss coin for second time in three games after winning the toss against CSK; fans react

Sanju Samson’s obsession with the toss coin continues as once again he pocketed the coin. It happened in the 12th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Both the captains – MS Dhoni and Sanju Samson came out for the toss and MS Dhoni flipped the coin, which fell near to Samson. He won the toss and took the toss coin with him too. Notably, the RR skipper had quickly grabbed the coin only, when his side faced Punjab Kings.

However, in the post-match presentation, Samson revealed that he had to return the coin as the match referee said it was not allowed. When he was asked the reason behind his new hobby, Samson responded that he found the coin “really nice”. “The coin looked really nice so I pocketed it. I asked the match-referee if I can have it, but he said no, it is now allowed,” Samson said about the incident during the post-match presentation ceremony.

However, today, seeing a different referee, he thought to try his luck once again as he was seen picking up the toss and went straight to Simon Doull, the broadcaster, to reveal his choice after winning the toss.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

Sanju Samson has been in the news in recent times. Recently, he gave a nickname to Jos Buttler. In a recent video shared by Rajasthan’s Twitter handle, Samson was seen giving a speech after their win against Delhi Capitals and called Buttler “Jos Bhai”.
