Jofra Archer’s old tweet goes viral as India loses early wickets to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2021

By Aswin Kumar

Cricketer Jofra Archer’s tweet went viral again on Sunday when Team India lost two early wickets in quick succession against Pakistan in the high-octane Super 12 match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 here in Dubai.

In 2015, the former England pacer tweeted about Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul’s wicket, in an old tweet.

Archer’s old tweet went viral after India lost both openers, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, in quick succession to a brilliant bowling spell from Shaheen Afridi.

Fans shared Archer’s 2015 tweet, “Come man out Rohit and Rahul,” on Twitter.

Team India got off to the worst possible start after being put in to bat. Shaheen Afridi trapped opener Rohit Sharma LBW on 0 in the first over. He’d gone in search of a golden duck. Afridi then removed KL Rahul on 3 in his next over by disturbing his timber.

Suryakumar Yadav played a few shots and got the scoreboard ticking at 4, but he was also dismissed by Hasan Ali in the sixth over.

After 17.1 overs, Kohli, who had been holding the fort for his team, completed his half-century and played some magnificent shots to give India a final flourish in the company of Ravindra Jadeja.

Pakistani captain Babar Azam won the toss and chose to bowl against India in a Super 12 match in Dubai.

Captain Virat Kohli rested Ravichandran Ashwin, Rahul Chahar, Shardul Thakur, and Ishan Kishan from the playing XI, replacing them with Varun Chakravarthy.

Meanwhile, the match ended with Pakistan winning its first match against India in ICC World cup 2021 by 10 wickets.
