The ongoing season of the IPL season has seen a number of instances when the bails have not been dislodged despite the ball hitting the stumps with substantial force. The match between the Rajasthan Royals and the Delhi Capitals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur witnessed another such incident when Joffra Archer’s full toss hit the leg stump on the full but the bails refused to come off leaving the fielding side completely shocked.
It all happened during Delhi Capitals chase in the final ball of the 16th over. Jofra Archer ran up and bowled a fast full bunger at Prithvi Shaw, who made room in order to scythe the ball over point. However, the young man could not connect and the ball kissed the bails on its way through to the wicket-keeper. A distraught Archer slumped down with his hands on his knees and looked around in absolute bewilderment.
