MI vs RCB: Toss tampering claim gets fact checked on internet

The toss of MI vs RCB match was caught in controversy after a social media post showed match official Javagal Srinath tampering with coin

While RCB’s poor form continued at the Wankhede Stadium, an unwarranted claim has been making the rounds on social media about the toss of the match. In the match, Mumbai Indians won the toss and decided to field first. 

In the post, the match referee Javagal Srinath’s action during the toss caught the attention of the audience. Fans on social media accused Srinath of tampering with the coin by flipping the side while picking it up.

Social media handle clears the misconception

However, another social media handle cleared the misconception by posting a video in slow motion. The video showed with clarity that Srinath had not flipped the coin, rather, he had forgotten RCB skipper Faf du Plessis call. 

Mumbai Indians defeat RCB convincingly

Mumbai Indians managed a comfortable win in the match, chasing down RCB’s total in 15.3 overs. Post the match, Faf du Plessis said that he needs to somehow win tosses and that dew played an important factor. At the Wankhede, teams prefer to field first, as chasing gets easy because of dew.
