The same Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Jaufra Archer said that in the IPL 2020, his team will chase the target like Rajasthan Royals mountain of 224 runs against Kings XI Punjab.
Nobody had ever expected such a thing, they are very sure of this. During the match played at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab, the Royals successfully chased a mountain-like goal against Punjab.
And the comment of his elder Jouffra Archer has captured the match by 4 wickets. In a video posted by Rajasthan Royals, Joffra Archer said that he is quite satisfied. It was very difficult to believe that we would win the match against Punjab. In the beginning, we were very slow but in the end, we won the match and we are all very happy with it.
The only plan for all our batsmen was to see balls as well and then hit the ball hard after that. And the same Rahul Tewatia started to hit the ball in Sheldon Cottrell‘s over. And perhaps this was the match-winning over for us. Teotia hit the match for sixes in an over and put the match in our grip.
But I hope no one expected us to win. Especially when we reached the 15th over, it seemed that now we and our team will not win the match. But I am very happy that we won the match. Let us tell you that left-handed batsman Rahul Tewatia scored 53 runs on 31 balls. He was promoted to replace Robin Uthappa after Steve Smith was dismissed.

And he also vindicated the captain’s decision. Tevatiya was seen struggling a lot in the beginning when he came to bat. And then after that, the 18th over ended with a total of 5 sixes. At that time our team needed 51 runs in 18 balls. Then, putting five sixes on Cottrell’s balls made the match very close.
And after that, the remaining cancer was completed by Jaufra Archer. Archer opened his account with sixes as soon as he faced only 3 balls and scored 13 Rabs. Apart from this, Sanju Samson hit 85 runs and Steve Smith contributed 50 runs.
