Bat Flip replaces Coin toss in Big Bash League

The new season of Big Bash League made a start of a new era in the history of cricket. A 141-year-old tradition of flipping a coin for toss replaced by a bat flip on Wednesday.

Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers were battling in the opening game of the 8th Big Bash League. It was bat flip which stole the show. Australian legend Matthew Hayden became the first individual to flip the bat, which also marked the end of ‘heads or tails’, which will now be replaced by ‘hills or flats’.
