Latif raises question over coin-toss in WT20

May 20, 2016 | By

KARACHI: The match-fixing whistle-blower in the 90s, Rashid Latif has opened another Pandora’s box and questioned the coin-toss during the recently concluded World T20 in India. The former Pakistan captain, in a video message, claimed 90 percent of the coin-tosses were won by the captains called ‘heads’ during the mega event. “More than two dozen cameras are used during an international game these days however still the coin is not properly shown on screen before the match”, questioned Latif

The former captain also exhibited a coin having ‘heads’ printed on both sides.

Rashid Latif urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to eliminate the ambiguity over the coin-toss. “The ICC should get rid of this doubt and start showing both sides of the coin on TV before the coin-toss”, concluded Latif
