VIDEO: Jofra Archer smashed Lungi Ngidi for 4 huge sixes
Everyone thought that Chennai Super Kings are the clear favourites for their game against Rajasthan Royals. But, Steve Smith-led Rajasthan posted a massive total of 216 for 7 on their board.
The skipper made an interesting move and came to open the innings for his franchise. Even though they lost Jaiswal cheaply, Steve Smith and Sanju Samson smashed the Chennai Super Kings bowling attack all over the park.
The wicket-keeper batsman scored a 19-ball fifty and went on to score 74 runs from just 32 balls with the help of 9 sixes and a four. On the other hand, Steve Smith smashed boundaries without taking risks.
The skipper managed to score 69 off 47 deliveries with the help of four fours and four sixes. After the wickets of Sanju Samson and Steve Smith, it looked like Rajasthan would fail to reach the mark of 200 as they were at 178 for 7 at the end of 19th over.
However, the England pacer, Jofra Archer stunned everyone by smashing four consecutive sixes in the final over bowled by Lungi Ngidi. He hit first four balls for the sixes and the third and fourth sixes came on no-balls. Fortunately, Archer could not continue his six hittings in the remaining four balls.
