Joffra Archer of England was bought by Rajasthan Royals for a huge amount of money during the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) season before he made his foray into international world cricket. On which he was not convinced at all and he felt that he would come back for the entire season just sitting in the dressing room in India. He believed that he had not played international cricket before that and in such a situation, Rajasthan Royals bought him 7.20 crores, which was really shocking.
It is worth noting that in the Big Bash T20 League of Australia before the IPL, Archer was showing his bowling, fielding and batting. Due to this, the eyes of the IPL franchise were focused on this player. Recalling his IPL auction, Archer said that at that time he was playing for Hobart Hurricanes. In such a situation, he got very excited as soon as his name came up.
Speaking to Ish Sodhi on Rajasthan Royals Instagram, Archer said, “I was obviously excited! I was out of the ground two or three hours ago, our (Hobart Hurricanes) match was with the Melbourne Stars.” And we had defeated them. That’s how teammates I, Darcy Schott, Ben were all watching the auction. “
Archer then said, “At one time I got two phones, the first one was from Chris Jordan and the second was from my parents. Before Chris said anything I said that I would hardly take someone in the auction because I had international There was absolutely no experience of the matches. I told Jordan that I should buy someone at the base price so that I can go to India even if there is no match to play. “
After this, about the auction, Archer said, “As soon as I see the bidding has started in front of my name, after that I am very happy that I am going to India now.”

However, Rajasthan Royals were bought by Archer for their team, much above their base price. On which they believe that perhaps the royals had spent more money on me. To which Archer said, “I was very lucky and then in the next few months I was going to go to India. After which I met many players of the team, so it went for the second year. I think the best thing is that the Royals He did not make changes in his core team, due to which he has remained well with everyone. That is also the strength. “
After that, Archer took 26 wickets in two seasons for Rajasthan Royals. However, he was ruled out before the 2020 IPL season due to elbow injury. But now that the IPL is canceled indefinitely due to Corona epidemic, he can probably return to his team Rajasthan Royals whenever the IPL happens.
