India winning a toss has become a rare sight in the past year or so. Be it any crucial matches or at the global tournaments, winning a toss has always been a problem. In the recently concluded 20-20 World Cup, former T20I skipper Virat Kohli lost three tosses in the five games. The trend though changed in the recent T20I series against New Zealand as India managed to win all three tosses.

Seeing India win three back-to-back tosses, cricketer-turned-expert Zaheer Khan took to Twitter and sparked a conversation about the rarest cricketing moments.

In the caption, the former India pacer wrote “Still can’t believe India won three tosses in the recent series. Did the coins have a secret chip, just like the currency notes? Just kidding, can you recall more such rare moments? PS: Only cricketers can reply” #Rario.

The hashtag #Rario was given because along with Zaheer, Smriti Mandhana, Faf du Plessis, Shakib-al-Hasan and Shafali Verma were among the cricketers to have signed with Rario mint exclusive NFTS of their noteworthy moments.

Although the above-mentioned cricketers shared their favourite cricketing moments, Wasim Jaffer’s Tweet become instantly viral. He replied to Zaheer’s comment and said “Yes winning 3 tosses in a row is rare but not as rare as Wasim Jaffer having better bowling figures than Zaheer Khan”

Jaffer posted an old scoreboard of a match where he bowled 11 overs and took two wickets. Whereas Zaheer bowled 48 overs in the Test and had two wickets to his name giving away 129 runs.

Zaheer was quick to reply back and reminded Jaffer about scoring more runs than him in both innings of a Test match. “Equally rare is Zaheer Khan outscoring @WasimJaffer14 in not one but both innings of a test match!”
