Toss Time Magic: Shreyas Iyer’s Coin Kiss Leaves Fans Spellbound at Eden Gardens

Shreyas Iyer’s Coin Kiss moment: Kolkata Knight Riders’ captain, Shreyas Iyer, left cricket fans in awe during the toss of the IPL 2024 match against Lucknow Super Giants at Eden Gardens. Given the responsibility as the home skipper, Iyer added a touch of flair to the traditional coin toss ritual.

Before flipping the coin, Iyer surprised everyone by kissing it for good luck. And luck indeed favored him as he won the toss yet again. Opting to field first, Iyer’s unique act didn’t go unnoticed, with cricket enthusiasts sharing their reactions online.

The official handle of Jio Cinema further amplified the moment by posting a clip of the toss segment, prompting a surge in reactions. This wasn’t the first time Iyer had employed this tactic; he had previously kissed the coin before the toss, and both times, he emerged victorious.

Commentators on social media couldn’t help but jest about the unusual ritual, with one user humorously remarking, “This is a new witchcraft that has come into the market.” Others suggested that other captains, like Ruturaj Gaikwad of CSK, should adopt this practice for good luck.

The match itself saw Kolkata Knight Riders securing a convincing victory against Lucknow Super Giants by 8 wickets. A stellar partnership between Phil Salt and Shreyas Iyer for the third wicket paved the way for their triumph, further fueling the intrigue around Iyer’s pre-toss ritual.
