Jofra Archer has been ruling the roost in international cricket for the past 2 years. He has been bowling brilliantly and giving the batsmen a hard time. Though his IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals hasn’t been able to top the table, he has been regularly picking up wickets for them. He has been one of the stand-out players for RR.
His good form continued in the match against Mumbai Indians on Sunday, where he picked up two wickets. Archer has a knack of staying in the headlines and his antics in the match on Sunday surely grabbed the eyeballs. IPL is known as a hub of class international players and ambitious youngsters who play under one umbrella to prove their worth.
Jofra Archer imitated Jasprit Bumrah
IPL has given the Indian team many class players and one of them is Jasprit Bumrah. Bumrah is regarded as one of the best bowlers in international cricket across formats. Jofra Archer was seen imitating Bumrah’s bowling action just as he was getting ready to bowl. He imitated the way Bumrah starts his run-up and then burst into a smile. The fans surely enjoyed this moment and gave hilarious reactions online.
Here’s the video
Rajasthan Royals won the game against Mumbai Indians and spiced up the things a little bit for the teams at the bottom. RR’s win also meant that Chennai Super Kings are well and truly out of the tournament now. This will be the first time when CSK won’t feature in the playoffs, barring the 2016 and 2017 season where they were suspended.
Mumbai is still at the top with 14 points followed by Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore who have the same points. KKR and KXIP are still in the race to playoffs with SRH also having a slim chance to qualify. It would be interesting to see the battle for the 4th position.
