Mumbai Indians’ star bowler Jofra Archer had a bad day at work. The English fast-pace bowler conceded 56 runs in 4 overs and had an economy of 14 after going wicketless. Liam Livingstone revealed the conversation between him and Jofra Archer.

“It felt like a good pitch; playing spin was quite difficult. I tried to ensure that we did not lose wickets in clumps, it’s a good score. It’s a good pitch, so we will have to bowl well. It’s nice to get going. I had lunch with Archer today, and he said he was going to come after me. He (Archer) knows what I don’t like. Playing spin was a bit harder, but I picked up bowlers pretty well today,” said Liam Livingstone in the innings break.

Mumbai Indians chased the target in 18.5 overs. Ishan Kishan and Surya Kumar Yadav scored 75 and 66 runs off 41 and 31 deliveries respectively.
