Archer to get his desired debut against Pakistan
England national cricket team are in superb form at the recent times ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. With addition to this, Barbadian born English cricketer, Jofra Archer, who’s also in red hot form from much times can be added to World Cup squad of England. England’s limited over captain, Eoin Morgan insisted that yesterday.
Archer played for West Indies U-19 team but didn’t debut for the national team. Archer, who fit the bill to play for England prior this month after the England and Wales Cricket Board loosened up its residency rules, has detonated onto the world scene with exceptional performances in limited overs competitions, and Morgan would not close the entryway on the 23-year-old’s World Cup entrance.
The favourites for the World Cup, England are unbeaten in their last ten two-sided one-day international series and are on the top of ICC ODI team rankings. But for the sake of the team, they won’t hesitate to change the winning combination of the team. That’s why they want to see the performance of Archer in the national team. Archer will play the T20 against Pakistan on May 5 and then will play five matches ODI series against the same opponent from May 8.
Archer showed his class and potential all over the world including the tournaments like IPL, BPL, CPL and BBL. “It’s not about a winning combination,” said England restricted overs captain Morgan, who was available to welcome fans to the main Super Saturday during the ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour, driven by Nissan, as the trophy became the overwhelming focus in Manchester’s Exchange Square.
“Trevor Bayliss said after the West Indies arrangement we will take a look at him against Pakistan and that is the thing that we will do. We don’t need to name our [World Cup] squad until the finish of the Pakistan series so we’ll see and perceive how he goes,” he added.
Just few months ago, they completed the tour of West Indies. Ahead of the World Cup, they have another two series against Pakistan and Ireland. But Morgan wants to think about the World Cup only. “I think we’re in good position. We’ve two series against Pakistan in our home soil and against Ireland in Dublin for the World Cup preparation. But we’re thinking about the World Cup only,” he said.
As the tournament hosts, England will have huge pressure on them especially after the disappointment in the Champions Trophy back in 2017.
