Jofra Archer stuns BBL crowds yet again with direct-hit run-out

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Jofra Archer continues to take the BBL by storm with his brilliant fast bowling and electric fielding.

Although his team Hobart Hurricanes lost by 5 wickets against Perth Scorchers, it was the Sussex man who stole headlines again, producing a vicious bouncer to get rid of Michael Klinger (off the helmet) and effecting a stunning run out from the boundary.

Charging round from long-on, Archer’s pick up and throw to the far end of the ground hit the base of the stumps in an extraordinary display of athleticism and long-range accuracy to dismiss Adam Voges.

Klinger was discomfited by Archer’s raw pace to be bowled as Archer cranked up the gas during the Powerplay.

Archer, who was born in Barbados but intends to play international cricket for England, has attracted many admirers during his spell in Australia with the Hurricanes, with an array of eye-catching bowling and fielding feats.

He could be picked up for big money in the IPL auction at the end of the month.
