Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson made a goof-up just ahead of the start of their Indian Premier League 2018 season against Rajasthan Royals at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad on April 9.
During the toss time, Kane Williamson forgot the name of his fourth overseas player.
Williamson and RR skipper Ajinkya Rahane were out in the field along with Danny Morrison, who was moderating the toss and match along with Sunil Chaturvedi.
Home captain Williamson flipped the coin and Rahane opted for tails. RR lost the toss as match referee called it heads. Morrison asked Williamson about his decision, and he, without wasting any time, opted to bowl first.
Morrison then asked the home captain about the four overseas player playing today’s game. Williamson replied ‘Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake, Myself and we have one more.”
The opposition captain Rahane reminded Williamson that his 4th overseas player is Shakib-ul-Hassan.
