Jofra Archer bowled Prithvi Shaw on the first ball of the IPL 2020 match between RR vs DC in Dubai.
He broke into the Bihu dance along with Riyan Parag. Parag, a native of Guwahati in Assam, had celebrated Rajasthan’s win over SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday with the traditional Assamese dance form. The celebration has quickly caught up with his mates as Archer was also seen imitating a few steps in the dugout before the match.
Archer bowled a seam-up delivery at over 140 kmph as the ball moved back in to Shaw before taking the inside edge of the bat and crash into the middle stump.
While Shaw was flabbergasted with his dismissal – a first-ball duck – Archer and the teammates were ecstatic as was seen in the celebrations.

Parag played a remarkable knock of 42 not out of 26 balls and shared an unbroken 85-run partnership with Rahul Tewatia, who scored 45 off 28 and remained unbeaten till the end.
The two chased down SRH‘s 158 with one ball to spare and Parag was seen teaching Tewatia a few Bihu dance after the match.
The celebrations aside, Rajasthan find themselves in a sticky situation in IPL 2020 with just six points from seven matches and languish in the seventh position on the points table.
