New Delhi: West Indies all-rounder Jofra Archer came into the limelight by performing consistently well in the Big Bash League for Hobart Hurricanes this season. It was courtesy his performance in Australia, that he was picked for a whopping Rs 7.2 crore by Rajasthan Royals in the IPL auctions.
Currently participating in the Pakistan Super League, Archer has been ruled out of the tournament due to a side strain. The Quetta Gladiators player had only featured in two games till now. Australian Ben Laughlin was called as a replacement for Archer.
The franchise put up a video message by Archer on social media. “Speed sensation Jofra Archer waves goodbye. Sad he could only play 2 out of 4 matches due to side strain. See you soon JOF!!! #Zordaar11,” Gladiators’ post read.
Jofra played for county side Sussex in 2016, and the next year finished as their highest wicket-taker in Division Two. In the past, the West Indian has earned praise from Dale Steyn, for his ferocious yorkers and bouncers.
