Rajasthan Royals defeated the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 26th match of IPL 2020. Some of the credit for the win goes to Jofra Archer and his recent dominance over David Warner. Archer dismissed Warner when he was just 2 runs short of his half-century. And David Warner’s dismissal brought an Xbox worth INR 50,000 for Jofra Archer.
After winning the toss, Sunrisers Hyderabad decided to bat first. Rajasthan Royals succeeded in dismissing the in-form Jonny Bairstow early. David Warner and Manish Pandey partnered for a fifty-plus stand. However, as Warner was warming up for playing big shots, Steve Smith brought Jofra Archer into the scene. Jofra Archer came to bowl in the 15th over and he delivered results once again.
Jofra Archer and David Warner’s duel continues since the ODI and T20I series between Australia and England last month. Out of the five occasions they had faced each other during the series, Archer had sent back the left-handed batsman four times. During the Ashes series last year as well, the pacer took Warner’s wicket on three occasions.
Jofra Archer bagged the Xbox
The latest dismissal of the left-handed Aussie, however, has helped Jofra Archer win an Xbox. The incident is that before the IPL match, he had asked the Xbox UK how many wickets they wished him to dismiss to get the latest gaming console. Xbox told him in reply to just take one wicket and that should be of David Warner.
Jofra Archer dismissed Warner at 48 runs. He is now ready to get the latest Xbox gaming console, which is worth INR 50,000.
Rajasthan Royals were chasing a total of 159 runs and lost some early wickets. Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag shared an unbeaten partnership of 85 runs and led the team to win the match.
