South Africa were at the receiving end of an absolute hammering from hosts India in the recent three-match Test series. The visitors crashed to a humiliating series whitewash as captain Faf du Plessis lamented his bad luck for losing all of the three tosses.
“Every Test match they bat first, they score 500, they declare when it’s dark, they get three wickets when it’s dark and when day three starts you are under pressure. It was like copy and paste in every Test match,” he complained.
The Proteas skipper thus advised eliminating the toss system so that away teams have a better chance of competing in Test cricket.
“Then away teams will have a better chance. In South Africa, I don’t mind that, we bat on green tops anyway,” he added while advocating for abandoning the coin toss rule.
