Jofra Archer finally recovers lost World Cup medal

Jofra Archer has finally found his prized World Cup winner's medal after going through the inconvenience of misplacing it following a house move.

The Sussex star shot to prominence for helping England clinch their maiden World Cup trophy last year. The 25-year-old pacer was the hero for his side when he darted in an exceptional Super Over to lead England to victory by the barest of margins in the final against New Zealand at Lord's.

Archer took to social media to announce the good news regarding the recovery of his medal by captioning a photograph of the souvenir: "Randomly searching the guest bedroom and boom."

When asked about the whereabouts of his medal on Saturday during an interview with BBC Radio, he said: "I had it hanging off a portrait someone did for me and sent to me, I had my medal hanging on that.

"I moved flat and the picture is on the new wall but there's no medal. I turned the house upside down for about a week but I still haven't managed to find it.

"I know it should be in the house so I will keep eyes out for it but I've gone mad looking for it already."

Currently, the Barbados-born cricketer is spending time in self-isolation as the coronavirus shutdown has put sports around the globe to a complete halt.

He was expected to feature for the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League but the event has been postponed indefinitely with the exponential increase of COVID-19 cases in the region.
