In Jofra Archer’s absence Chris Morris ready for added responsibility of leading RR pace attack

Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 auction, most expensive buy Chris Morris says leading the RR pace attack in the non-appearance of injured Jofra Archer in the upcoming IPL will be an additional responsibility yet it does not change the part in the franchise.

In a huge blow to the RR campaign, pace spearhead Archer was ruled out of the first half of the tournament because of an elbow injury he endured during the lately concluded England’s tour of India. In his absence, new enlist Morris is sit to lead the fast bowling attack.

Each of every team that he played in IPL, his part has been with the new ball and death. It doesn’t really change. He always had fast bowlers in the franchise and been there as support, Morris said at virtual press conference.

Its not a new role if he leading an attack, and not new if he support. There is a bit of responsibility for him when it comes to leading an attack. However, he said it wouldn’t be able to be alien to him as he added.

Morris became the most expensive buy in the IPL auction history as RR team shelling out Rs 16.25 crore last month. The pressure that comes with such an expensive price tag, Morris said that its natural to have a little bit of pressure, at the end of the day, no matter what the price tag is, you need to perform.

Morris feels his role in the franchise is different from that of fellow all-rounder Ben Stokes, who he feels having the magic touch in cricket. Stokes could be an interesting duo to come up, Morris said.

The Rajasthan Royals have a new captain in Sanju Samson this year. Morris who shared the dressing room with the 26 years old in the IPL before, feels as someone who remains wickets and also fields, the Indian has a lot to provide while leading the franchise.

Morris obviously lucky that he got a good relationship with Sanju, he don’t see him as a young skipper but a good cricket player who got a great cricket brain. Morris sure that Sanju has some good ideas and some interesting things that they need to discuss when it comes to plans and tactics.

As being the most higher price tag, and many franchise are interested in his services, for Morris is a confidence booster. For now his only focused on winning the IPL.
