Archer wants England to carry on the World Cup winning momentum
England all-rounder Jofra Archer wants his team to carry on the same positive momentum around the team after winning the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
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.
The all-rounder wants to carry on the legacy in the team at the momentum for a long period of team. He requests the England Cricket Board to help the youngsters pick the game as a long-term sport.
”I’ve seen many videos of kids playing, doing their celebrations in the back garden,” he said. I think the World Cup is going to get spoken about for many years to come. We do need to use it. I think we need to push it a lot further,” Jofra Archer said.
“Look at the kids. It’s wet and muddy but I don’t think they care. It makes us happy to see them playing and wanting to do better.” Never give up,” he said. “If no one believes in you, you have to believe in yourself. You never know where cricket can take you in two weeks, two months or a year… Anything is possible.”
The all-rounder is hopeful that his team can show great performances in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2020 too and they are aiming to win back to back World Cups.
“We want to climb the rankings in the Test Championship. I think we can make history,” he said. We have started already. Hopefully, we can win back-to-back (World Cups). Who’s to say we can’t? Everyone is around the same age in the group we have got together. We will be together for a lot more years.”
