Indian skipper Virat Kohli is a run machine. On a given day, Virat can score runs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, one thing that isn’t in his control is winning the toss. In fact, he has a horror luck with tosses which means the opposition team has that slight bit of advantage as they tend to win the toss against Kohli, especially in crunch matches.
Even in the ODI series-decider against England, Virat lost the toss as the Men in Blue have been invited to bat first on a wicket that is expected to get better for stroke-making under lights. Following the toss, Virat just helplessly donned a smile as the cameras caught his reaction. Kohli, who is captaining India for the 200th time, hasn’t won a toss for a single time this series and the coin flip today was Virat’s 1oth loss in the last 15 matches.
Following the 32-year-old’s absolutely poor run of tosses, Twitter has gone berserk. Netizens including R Ashwin have given an interesting advice for India to somehow win the toss.
Have a look at what the netizens are saying:

I guess it’s time now for Virat Kohli to bring in a specialist coin tosser 😂
Something that @faf1307 did against ZIM after going 6 games without winning a toss.
Faf got @jpduminy21 to toss the coin for him and it worked as SA won the Toss & also won the match.#INDvENG | #toss pic.twitter.com/ZV4tfLyCVk
