Archer looks effortless putting these away. Cool as you like

managing Charlton.
But that was some very ordinary death bowling from Punjab

To top it off, his fecking expressions didn't change once through the course of the innings.
I was in Dhaka stadium in 2015 for T20i Sri Lanka vs India final when Yuvraj for stuck in similar problem. We could all feel his panic while he was eating up balls trying to find form. He panicked and eventually got out, and that 15 mins cost India the game.

You’re right that was the incredible part of Tewatia innings. He didn’t panic despite getting trolled by Samson refusing him the strike or his team mates looking at him with even stares :lol:

Memorable knock but punjab have now lost 2 matches they should have won, one against delhi and now this. Rahul not giving bowl to m ashwin but bowling maxwell was weird.

Definitely a strange one, at one point looked like it could have been one of if not the worst 20/20 knock of all time
Should say that was the best innings from the entire the Rajasthan side. Tewatia is a hero nonetheless

You realize there is a button to mute the audio, right?
it wasn’t related. I switched off because I didn’t want to watch.

Samson sounds like such a nice guy - I hope we see him in the Indian team soon.

Yeah. Ridiculous really. No contest between bat and ball at all.

Imagine if Buttler had got in...
Am surprised they haven’t put netting up on the boundary that backs onto the main road.
I think batters have hit the ball into the road 3 or 4 times already.
Sooner or later it will directly hit a car screen or person and could be deadly.

I hope we get some Archer/Broad tailend hi-jinks at some point in tests.

Yeah they need some kind of protection for sure.

I thought we'd get a world record today. Maybe we'll see one before the end of the tournament?
What’s the record?
Today is the ipl record. I think the prev one was hussey and Hayden chasing it down against Punjab.

I think the previous record also belonged to RR chasing 221 against Deccan Chargers in 2008.

It feels notable that T20 is at the point where guys like Archer, Cummins and Tewatia are smashing bowlers like Ngidi, Bumrah and Cottrell out of the park consistently. Obviously the conditions in the UAE are helping too.

This ground at Sharjah is just too small, and the pitch is just too flat.
