Archer earns both red-ball and white-ball contracts from ECB
Jofra Archer is the latest sensation in the England team with both red ball and white ball. The Caribbean born fast bowler first impressed everyone with a good ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 for England after making his debut for England.
The fast bowler continued to repeat the same in the Ashes 2019 too. He was one of the most talked players throughout the tournament. Especially his battle with Steve Smith was the highlight of the series.
After two back to back two good series for England, Jofra Archer is been awarded with a full contract from England Cricket Board. He has already cemented his place in England’s best team across all formats and has been rewarded by Ashley Giles, England’s Director of Cricket, with one of the 22 central contracts.
Apart from him, Jack Leach has been awarded with an International contract for the first time along with Tom Curran in the red-ball format. While Adhil Rashid and Moeen Ali are denied with red ball contract as they are given the only white-ball contract.
