In Twenty20 cricket, teams tend to chase after winning the toss. But at times, pitch and conditions also influence a captain’s decision. In case of Saturday’s IPL 2020 opener between the Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings, weather too could play a role.
Chennai Super Kings won the toss in 12 out of 17 matches in the 2019 edition while Mumbai Indians won eight tosses in 16 games. Here’s how M.S. Dhoni and Rohit Sharma fared with the coin toss last year.
