Sanjay Manjrekar stressed the importance of the toss during the most recent Asia Cup. He also emphasized that Afghanistan lost two of their three games while India lost tosses in all three of the Super 4 games.
On Sunday at the Dubai International Stadium, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will play in the Asia Cup final game.

He also emphasized that Afghanistan lost two of their three games while India lost tosses in all three of the Super 4 games.
T20 Cricket has to look into a fairer technique, Manjrekar said on Twitter. An significant aspect of this Asia Cup is that teams that lost the most super 4 tosses did not advance to the finals. India lost each match. 2. Afghanistan As a result, the outcome of a coin toss cannot decide who gains a considerable edge.
Fact that cannot be ignored in this Asia cup – Teams that lost most tosses in super 4s are not in the finals. India lost all 3. Afghanistan 2. Hence spin of the coin cannot decide who gets a very significant advantage. T20 Cricket needs to explore a fairer method.

So the teams with the most tosses lost are excluded from the super 4 finals. It is an unavoidable fact regarding this Asia Cup. India dropped each game. Afghanistan 2. Because of this, it is hard to determine who will be greatly favored by just tossing a coin. T20 cricket should look into a more equitable approach.
It is interesting to note that at the T20 World Cup last year. Which was hosted in the United Arab Emirates, Australia won the toss six out of seven times.
The head coach of Team India discussed the Asia Cup debacle and how the team’s two tournament losses shouldn’t worry fans before the game against Afghanistan.
On a field where defense has been a problem, we have lost a few games. We are not a poor squad only because we have a few losses, Dravid declared on Star Sports.
He remarked I don’t believe we need to overreact to anything. The environment is balanced, and the route continues whether we win or lose.
So Australia will be India’s next opponent in a three-match Twenty20 international series, which begins on September 20.
