The Dream11 IPL 2020 is reaching its climax. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR) game scheduled for tonite will end the playoff hopes for the loser of this match. RR’s fast bowling allrounder Jofra Archer has said he is feeling the pressure before the church game. According to Archer, the pressure not only comes from the match but also from the salary-tag of 7.2 crore.
In a column for Daily Mail Archer said, all remaining 5 matches including today’s game against CSK is make or break for Rajasthan Royals.
“For Rajasthan Royals it is now make-or-break time in the Indian Premier League and, although there will be different permutations in results which could see us lose another game and still make the play-offs, as far as I am concerned we have to look past mathematical equations.
From my perspective, we need to win all five remaining games to finish in the top four and have the chance of going through to the knockout stage”, wrote Archer in the column.
Archer wrote, salary tag of 7.2 Crore brings its own pressure in every IPL game.
‘The standard is extremely high. While international cricket is the top level, I feel there is more pressure here in one regard because people know exactly what your price tag is (mine is 7.2 Crore). Sometimes you are expected to fulfil certain things because of that and simply can’t — that’s cricket.
But I am in a very good headspace, happy with how the ball is coming out and the fact I am high on the list of wicket-takers and among the best economy rates’.
