IPL 2020: Jofra Archer bowls David Warner to win new Xbox Series X after hilarious Twitter bet with gaming company


- Advertisment -

ENGLAND cricket star Jofra Archer bowled himself to a new Xbox after skittling Aussie David Warner in the IPL.

The 25-year-old World Cup-winning hero made a cheeky bet with the gaming giant on Twitter BEFORE the tournament began.

Archer tagged the Xbox account and said: “How many wickets this tournament for a new Xbox?”

Xbox’s social media admin gave a tongue-in-cheek reply along with a winky face: “Just 1…@davidwarner31.”

And now, over three weeks later Archer – a massive Call of Duty fan – has fulfilled his side of the bargain by clean bowling Warner.

The Barbados-born star dismissed destructive opening batsman Warner for 48.

Archer went for 25 runs off his four overs, picking up just the wicket of Warner but managing to bowl an impressive 14 dot balls in a speedy spell.

He helped his side the Rajasthan Royals to a five-wicket win over Warner and England colleague Jonny Bairstow’s Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Archer continued his funny trend of previous tweets coming true after his September 18 post ‘New Xbox is secured’ came good.

Xbox noted Archer’s achievement and replied to the Royals’ official account asking him to ‘DM us your address then’.

Playful Archer replied by listing the Dubai hotel where his side are bubbled up for the duration of the big-money T20 bonanza.

He said: “One and only royal mirage.”

He could be hoping for an advanced delivery of the new Xbox Series X – not scheduled for release until November 10.

This year’s edition of the IPL is being held in the UAE rather than India, with teams staying in bubbles after quarantining upon their arrival, amid the coronavirus pandemic.
