Former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer came up with a hilarious meme ahead of the T20 World Cup final between New Zealand and Australia in Dubai. The meme included skipper of both the finalist teams - Kane Williamson and Aaron Finch, and also the match referee for the highly-anticipated final.
In the meme, the match referee is seen asking the two captains their choice for the toss i.e Heads or Tails. But Kane Williamson cheekily answers: "Hails", signifying both head and tails as he doesn't want to lose the toss. Notably, the toss has played a crucial role in Dubai during the World Cup so far, with sides batting second getting a clear advantage with dew on the field.
The BlackCaps defeated England by 5 wickets in the 1st semi-final in Abu Dhabi while the Aussies defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets in Dubai in the second semi-final. Both the teams had won their respective matches while batting second.

Toss won't decide final vs New Zealand: Australia skipper Aaron Finch
Australia captain Aaron Finch feels that the toss would not be a deciding factor in T20 World Cup 2021 final against New Zealand on Sunday. Finch even gave the example of IPL 2021 final where CSK defended 192 runs against KKR to make his point.
"To win this tournament, you're going to have to win batting first. I was actually hoping to lose toss against Pakistan. It was one of those ones where you're probably never going to bat first but you don't mind if you have to. It's the same going into the final," Sydney Morning Herald quoted Finch as saying.
"We saw it in the IPL final. Chennai were able to put a big score on the board and really squeeze there. It comes down to the day. If you can put a total on the board and make the opposition take risks early in their innings, then that's what it's all about," Finch added.
