England pacer Jofra Archer managed to pick up just two wickets in the recently concluded Test series in New Zealand. However, Archer did manage to trouble the Kiwi batsmen with a barrage of bouncers across the series. His bowling spells even troubled the home side's skipper Kane Williamson among several other New Zealand batters. Archer's IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals took notice of his performance and took to Twitter to boast about the same.
Rajasthan Royals posted a picture of Jofra Archer bowling a bouncer to Kane Williamson during the second Test in Hamilton. The New Zealand captain can be seen ducking to the bouncer which was mentioned by the Royals in their caption in a witty manner. Their tweet was soon responded in an equally hilarious manner by another IPL franchise, Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kane Williamson has been a regular member of the Hyderabad franchise since IPL 2015 and was appointed their captain since the IPL 2018. Check out the response by SRH down below.
