Indian captain Rohit Sharma forgot the coin during the toss against Pakistan for the T20 World Cup clash at New York's Nassau International County Cricket Stadium.

In a typical fashion, forgot where he kept the coin. As Ravi Shastri, the host for the toss, asked Rohit to toss the coin, the Indian captain was caught off-guard as he began searching for the coin before finally finding it in the pocket of his trouser.

The light moment sparked smiles from Rohit as well as Babar before the two recollected their emotions to get ready for the toss.


It must be noted Pakistan have opted to bowl first against India. Speaking at the toss, Babar said they have benched Azam Khan and replaced him with Imad Wasim.

Mohammad Amir took the ball in the Super Over and the USA concluded their innings 18-1 in reply, the Men in Green could only score 13-1 and ended up losing the match by five runs.

The loss has put Pakistan at crossroads and the game against India is of significant importance as a loss in New York today wo
