In terms of body language only, Rajasthan Royals speedster Jofra Archer and Kolkata Knight Riders open up bat Shubman Gill like poles apart. Archer is RR’s bling master, a true star in an otherwise calm line-up, while Gill is almost conservative in his approach, from his looks to his technique. The youngster probably has one of the most straightforward bats in IPL 2020 and never looks nervous, his photos are works of art in a world of crossed slogs. Archer is quite an athlete, can test the best of batsmen

with its short stuff and has the smile to challenge any batsman’s attitude.

This one will be quite a showdown.

Archer has only one wicket of two matches in IPL 2020 so far, but that’s not because of the lack of trying. He has played 23 IPL matches so far to claim 27 wickets at an economy of 7.65.


Gill was in the middle of things for KKR, with a fine of 70 not out against SunRisers Hyderabad. While he wasn’t really rushed by the SRH bowlers, he never seems to be in a rush. Gill has played 29 IPL matches for 576 runs with a success rate of 128.00.
