Archer bowled a yorker to Carey which was played towards the left of the bowler. The ball was looking primed to evade the bowler before Archer ran towards the ball and stopped it with one hand by a diving effort.

But by the time, the batsman could return to the crease, Archer turned back and threw the ball while still lying on the ground to disturb the furniture.

Archer went on to finish the innings with excellent figures of 3 for 27. However, his effort went in vain as Hurricanes lost the game by 11 runs while chasing 187.
