India captain Virat Kohli got a huge boost ahead of the third Test against England – he won the toss! Kohli in general has had poor fortune when it comes to the coin toss but has been particularly unfortunate against England. In fact, in the 11 Tests that he and England captain Joe Root went up against each other, Kohli had lost 10 tosses coming into the match at Headingley. It was also the first time he won the toss for a Test match in England. Kohli himself was the first to crack a joke about it “It’s a surprise I’ve won the toss,” he said immediately, before saying that India opted to bat first.
