IPL 2023: Jofra Archer’s role for Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers confounds Michael Vaughan Bangalore

IPL 2023: Jofra Archer's role for Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers confounds Michael Vaughan Bangalore

In the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Mumbai Indians by eight wickets, handing them their second consecutive IPL season opening setback. Notable batsmen included Virat Kohli (82* runs off 49 deliveries) and Faf du Plessis (73 runs off 43 deliveries), who both excelled in the home team’s quick 16.2 overs-long pursuit of 172 runs.

Former cricketer Micheal Vaughan recently claimed that the introduction of Jofra Archer in the fourth over of the game by Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma was a tactical error. The speedster should have been given the new ball, according to the former England captain, since he can cause havoc with it.

“The fact that Jofra Archer bowled the fourth astonished me. I’d put Jofra on after one of the first two overs if you have a modest total. Early wickets are necessary. There are times in cricket and in T20 cricket when you have to deviate from your pre-planned strategy. If Jofra’s going to bowl four and six, it was a pre-planned move.

They were 30/0 when Jofra Archer raised his fist, so I doubt it was simple for him to arrive. Both of them have their eyes in. When you have two excellent players set, bowling two overs is not an easy task. Speaking on Cricbuzz, Vaughan said, “I think it’d have been better suited to bowling at the top and trying to knock one or two of them over.

The IPL puts new pressure on Vaughan
Archer failed to take a wicket while allowing 33 runs to be scored in four overs during his first game for the Mumbai Indians. Given that renowned pacer Jasprit Bumrah has already been disqualified from the match, Mumbai has serious concerns about that right now. Hence, Archer is expected to shoulder more responsibilities in the middle, but he ultimately fell short against RCB.

“The pressure here is different from the pressure you experience when you return home to play for your national team. Although there is pressure involved in representing your country, you are well protected and aware that you will play in a few matches. Take a look at Harry Brook, who is making his IPL debut. He no longer resembled the player who had been wearing an England jersey for the previous six months. On Archer’s performance, Vaughan continued, “The IPL puts a different pressure.
