The inevitable has happed again as Jofra Archer has dismissed David Warner during the Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match in the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.

Having failed against Archer several times, the Australian southpaw was expected to rectify his mistakes, but that wasn’t a case at all. Chasing 155 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Warner and Archer met in the first over with the former struggling straightway. After teasing the left-handed batsman in the first three balls, Archer once again got his man as the dasher went back with just four runs in his kitty. RR vs SRH Score Updates IPL 2020.

Speaking of the dismissal, it was back of a length delivery which took the outside edge of Warner’s bat. However, credit should also go to another England player who took a stunning catch at the second slip. Meanwhile, let’s look at how netizens reacted, seeing Archer’s stellar show.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals posted 154/6 while batting first thanks to significant cameos from Sanju Samson, Riyan Parag and Jos Buttler. Notably, SRH haven’t won a single game while chasing this season and with Warner back in hut early, it will be interesting to see how the Orange Army will bounce back.
