Xtra Time Web Desk: There is never a dull moment with Team India captain Rohit Sharma and it was evident once again during the coin toss for second ODI against New Zealand at Raipur. After calling rightly at the toss, Rohit went into a brain freeze moment. He seemed lost for about 15 seconds before finally deciding to bowl first. The incident left match referee Javagal Srinath and New Zealand captain Tom Latham burst into laughter.
According to Rohit, he forgot what he wanted to do as there was plenty of discussions within the team management before the coin toss.
“I forgot what we wanted to do, had plenty of discussions with the team about the toss decision, just wanted to challenge ourselves under difficult conditions, but we’ll bowl first. Was a good test for us, knowing that the wicket will get better to bat on and that was the challenge in front of us,” Rohit said during the toss.
Team India support staffs including Head Coach Rahul Dravid, batting coach Vikram Rathour and bowling coach Paras Mhambrey were all seen laughing at each other watching the TV replays.
Rohit Sharma’s press conference quotes has been very hilarious in the past as well.
