Mayank Agarwal’s century and his 183-run stand for the first wicket with skipper KL Rahul put on 223 for two in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah on Sunday. When Kings XI was invited to bat, these two batsmen from Karnataka came to dominate. Agarwal was in the mood to play big shots from the start. He scored 10 off 50 balls with ten fours and seven sixes. Rahul, who scored a century in the last match, faced 54 balls and hit seven boundaries and a six in his 699-run innings.
While the main attraction of the match was Mayank, who chewed the Rajasthan bowlers along with Nako Chen with his batting, another player was instrumental in taking Punjab’s score to 223 by Nicholas Puran. Batting at number four, Puran hit 25 off just 8 balls with 1 boundary and 3 sixes. An old tweet from Joffra Archer suddenly went viral on social media after the offensive batting, which Kings XI Punjab also shared on its official Twitter handle.

In fact in this tweet Joffra Pu predicted Puran years ago that he would bat one day and got a similar outlook on the field against Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah on Sunday. In the last over of Punjab’s innings, what Joffra was doing, Punjab hit 22 with the help of 2 old sixes to reach 223. This isn’t the first time some of Joffrey’s old tweets have been published, some of his old tweets have been published before. His tweet related to Puran is from 14 February 2014.
