Sam Curran’s Act During Coin Toss vs Mumbai Indians A Result Of Tampering Talks? Watch


The ongoing IPL 2024 was hit by claims of toss tampering as many fans alleged that the result of the coin toss was changed by match referee Javagal Srinath during the match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The claims were debunked by social media users who provided video evidence against the claims. While fans have provided evidence both for and against the claim on social media, the topic came up once again during MI's match against Punjab Kings on Thursday. After the coin was tossed, PBKS stand-in captain Sam Curran stepped forward and checked the result himself before the coin was picked up by the match referee.

The broadcasters also decided to zoom in on the result and clearly show that PBKS had won the toss and opted to field.

“We'll have a bowl. In keeping with the trend of the tournament. Shikhar hasn't been well so that's the only injury and Riley came in for Jonny today. It's not good to lose close games but we've been through a lot.” Things are right. (Atharva) Taide is out of the team, there are just some tactical changes,” Curran said.

This is not the first time that a claim of toss tampering made headlines as a video showing a conversation between Faf and Pat Cummins convinced many fans that they were talking about the coin toss.
