Jofra Archer of England takes the weirdest wicket in the history of cricket as the ball flies for a six after hitting the bails. Jofra dismissed Soumya Sarkar for just 2 runs in the 4th over of the match. Jofra Archer’s wicket is surely the craziest wicket in 200 years of the game.
Was that a four? A six? No! A wicket for Archer!— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 8, 2019
