The hottest property in town, Rajasthan Royals’ star pick Jofra Archer led a brilliant counterattack to lead his side to victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders. The 24-year-old has been in the news mostly for his sheer raw pace that troubles opposing batsmen, but this time around his power hitting skills caught everyone’s attention.
The England quick was overlooked for selection in the final 15 member squad chosen for the World Cup, but it seems the youngster is proving the selectors wrong with his all-round performances. Coming in to bat during a crisis situation, Jofra showcased great calmness and maturity to guide his team over the line.
The right-hander lit up the venue with some meaty blows, bludgeoning a quick-fire 27 off 12 balls, including two sixes which sealed the deal for Rajasthan. Surely one of the brighter prospects this IPL season, Jofra looks a complete package.
