IPL 2020, DC vs RR: Jofra Archer celebrates first-ball wicket with Assam’s traditional Bihu Dance | Watch
New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Rajasthan Royals’ bowler Jofra Archer was seen celebrating the first-ball dismissal of Delhi Capitals’ opener Prithvi Saw with Assam’s traditional Bihu Dance on the field. The dance form appears to be catching up with Rajasthan Royals’ squad, as the team’s batsmen Riyan Parag had earlier been seen celebrating the victory in the similar fashion last week.
The moment was shared by the official twitter handle of the Indian Premier League. Have a look:
Reacting to the moment, former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan said one got to love Indian Premier League where an Englishman is seen showing off his Bihu Dance skills.
Archer celebrated in this fashion after dismissing Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw off the first ball of the innings for a duck. In his next over, he took the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane, putting Rajasthan on to against an otherwise consistent Delhi.
Archer's early wickets, however, could not guide the team to a win. Following Shaw and Rahane's dismissals, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer steadied Delhi's innings and guided the team to a respectable total of 161. Chasing the total, Rajasthan got off to a poor start, steadied itself in the middle overs, but again lost its way in the final overs to lose the match by 13 runs.
