Lucknow: Past never fades away! The phrase aptly suits Jofra Archer, the English cricketer, who was sold to Rajasthan Royals (RR) for a whopping Rs 7.20 crore.
The Sussex cricketer is most likely to face the wrath of Indian Cricket fans who have come to know that he has been a strong critic and opposer of team India as well as former Indian captain MS Dhoni.
Yes, after getting a great deal at the IPL auction 2018, Archer started trending on Twitter as people started praising the speedster for his achievements while playing for Sussex county team and in the Big Bash League (BBL).
But when the 22-year-old was being looked as a bowler who can make a difference in the cricketing festival, a Twitter user named Abhay Chaudhary quickly transformed him into a villain citing that he possesses great hate and disrespect for Indian Cricket team.
Abhay shared some screenshots of past tweets of Jofra Archer, made during 2013-14, in which he has wished defeat for India in international matches.
In a few of the Tweets, he also mocked legendary Indian cricketer MS Dhoni.
Checkout the screenshots of his tweets here:

Don't let his good manners fool you. He's a fierce competitor on the field, just like the Windies greats before him.#AbBajegaDanka #IPL2018 #IPLAuction #HallaBol pic.twitter.com/wVP8roftW6

Apart from the venom he spitted against India on Twitter a way back, he is an amazing bowler who consistently clocks near 150 kph despite having a great sense of swing, line and length.
He started his BBL journey with a double-wicket maiden and has a sensation economy rate of 6.92 while bowling during the death overs in BBL this season. He was hit for only three boundaries during the crucial period and had also taken five wickets,
Well, let us see what support he gets while playing for Rajasthan Royals when people know that he hated India very much in the past.
