On comeback trail, Jofra Archer strikes in his first over for MI Cape Town

On comeback trail, Jofra Archer struck in his opening over, the third of Paarl Royals’ innings after MI Cape Town invited them to bat first in the opening game of SA20 2023. Jos Buttler, however, spearheaded the recovery in a 36-run stand with fellow Englishman Jason Roy. A couple of quick strikes again jolted Royals, reducing them to 56/3 in the 10th over before Buttler combined with the dangerous David Miller. The resurgent Archer had a good outing as he returned in the 19th over to pick successive wickets and push Royals on the backfoot again.
