Shikhar Dhawan’s reaction after winning the toss against Sri Lanka in the 3rd ODI went viral and the internet is flooded with tweets and memes. The left-handed batsman is captaining the Indian side for the first time in his career and he wins the toss for the first time in the three-match ODI series and celebrated the toss win in his own style.
Earlier in the first two ODIs, Dhawan lost the toss and Sri Lanka decided to bat first in both games. India won the first game very easily with 7 wickets and 80 deliveries remaining. In the second ODI, Sri Lanka again won the toss and elected to bat first. India won the match by three wickets with five balls remaining.
After losing the toss in both matches, the left-handed batsman would have been eager to win the toss in the 3rd ODI. At the toss, Dasun Shanaka flips the coin and Shikhar Dhawan called it heads, and finally, he won the toss in this series. Then Dhawan celebrated the toss win in his own style (i.e.,) Thighfy style, and the crowd went wild and the presentation team in the toss area burst into laughter.
