In terms of body language alone, Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Joffra Archer and Kolkata Knight Riders opener Shubman Gill were included in the squad. Archer is RR’s bling master with considerable star quality in an otherwise unconscious line-up, while Gill is almost conservative in his approach, from his appearance to his technique. The youngster has one of the most straight batsmen in IPL 2020 and never looks shocked, his shots are a work of art in the world of cross-battered slogs. Archer is quite an athlete, can test the best batsmen
With his small baggage and to challenge the posture of any batsman he has a smile.
It will be quite a face-off.
Archer has only one wicket in two matches so far in IPL 2020, but this is not due to lack of tries. He has played 23 IPL matches so far taking 27 wickets from an economy of 7.65.
Gill has been in the thick of things for KKR, scoring an unbeaten 70 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. While he was not really in a hurry by SRH bowlers, he never appears to be in a hurry. Gill has played 29 IPL matches for 576 runs at a strike rate of 128.00.
