Initially of the Twenty20 collection’ remaining earlier at the moment, Perth Scorchers captain Ashton Turner and Brisbane Warmth captain Chris Lynn have been left shocked when the bat landed on its edge twice in the course of the bat-flip to determine which workforce would bat or bowl first.
On the first try, the bat-flip was not as stunning however when it occurred for the second time, each groups’ captains have been left shocked, with boos and yays from these round them.
Nevertheless, at third try, Brisbane Warmth gained the toss and elected to bowl.
Within the bat-flip, launched earlier than the BBL’s 2018-19 season, “colourful bats being thrown in the air to decide the course of play”, in keeping with Yahoo! Cricket.
The publication quoted Kim McConnie, Cricket Australia’s head of the BBL, as saying the bat-flip “is a great moment which reflects what the BBL is about”.
“Some people don’t like change but I’d also challenge people to say when was the last time anyone watched the coin toss or really focused on it to a great extent,” McConnie had mentioned.
