India won the toss and chose to bowl first in the second One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand of the three-match series at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur on Saturday, January 21. The Men in Blue will be hoping to win the match to clinch the series before the final match.
The Rohit Sharma-led team is playing with the same playing XI from the previous match, where they registered a narrow 12-run win over the visitors at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday, January 18. The Black Caps are also fielding the same playing XI as Ish Sodhi hasn’t recovered from the injury.

For a moment, Rohit thought would do a Miandad at the toss. “Will let you know after going to dressing room” something like that

Since most people have found this Toss very amusing because of Rohit’s brainfade,one of the funniest toss/Bat flip was in BBL where they kept flipping the bat but it just wouldn’t land right.
