England’s choice to bowl first seemed miscalculated as Australian openers David Warner and Travis Head launched into a blistering assault. Their commanding form rapidly pushed Australia’s score to 55 without loss within just four overs, despite the challenging conditions on the Barbados pitch.

However, momentum shifted in England’s favor when Moeen Ali dismissed Warner in the fifth over, followed by Jofra Archer’s spectacular bowling, which claimed Head’s wicket in the very next over.

In the fourth ball of the fifth over, Archer unleashed a cunning slower ball, a disguised off-cutter. The left-handed Head, caught off guard by the variation, tried to carve it towards the off-side with a forceful shot, creating space for the drive.

Instead, the ball, skimming through low like a bullet due to the vigorous swing, ducked under his bat and shattered the middle stump. Head, bewildered, stared back at the scattered stumps before walking off with a hint of disappointment.

Meanwhile, Archer, pulsating with excitement, celebrated curtailing what seemed like an imminent ‘Head-storm’. The delivery instantly became a sensation on Twitter, with fans and pundits alike praising Archer’s skill and its game-changing impact.
