Jofra Archer gets maiden national team call-up

Talk of the town, England’s fast bowler, Jofra Archer failed to make it to England’s preliminary 15-man World Cup squad. However, he has received his maiden call-up to England's ODI squad for next month's One-Day Internationals against Ireland and Pakistan.

The Sussex paceman could still have as many as six ODIs — one against Ireland and five against Pakistan as well as a Twenty20 against Pakistan, to make his claim for a spot in the World Cup squad in front of the selectors.

The 24-year-old’s ability to bowl at more than 90 miles per hour and his lower-order power-hitting skills have earned him a number of high-profile admirers, including England regulars Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler.
