Rajasthan Royals pacer, Jofra Archer bowled brilliantly against Chennai Super Kings. The tall Barbados pacer ended up with figures of 2/17, which also included a maiden over. He was unlucky not to get MS Dhoni’s wicket as the ball hit the stumps but the bails didn’t come off, much to everyone’s surprise. At that time, the CSK skipper hadn’t even opened his account. Despite that, his bowling was top-notch.

But Archer wasn’t too happy even after an exceptional spell of fast bowling. “Honestly, these have been the worst conditions I have bowled in. It is very very hard and challenging with the amount of dew. The ball has been wet for 8-9 overs the seam is slimy and then the new hard ball went the distance. We played here yesterday and there was a lot more dew, but there is still a lot of dew getting onto the ball.

“It is very hard to bowl a yorker and to bowl full. I have experienced such conditions once in Bangladesh, but no, I haven’t trained for conditions like these,” said Archer at the end of the Chennai innings, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
