The English cricket team has brought in fast bowler Jofra Archer for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup after the brilliant start to his international career. The pacer was fast tracked to the national setup after he proved himself to be an asset for team.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli has hailed the skill set and ability of Archer to bowl great pace even with such a short run up. He was of the view that the speedster would be the x-factor for the England side in the coming event.
"I think he's going to be their X-factor because he holds a skill set that's very different from anyone else, he can generate a lot of pace which can be very intimidating, and you don't really expect that because of his run-up. He's a great athlete. He's going to be exciting to watch in the World Cup, I'll personally be watching him as well because whatever I've seen of him has been very very exciting,” he said.
Kohli also said that being targeted by a bowler like Archer is a big compliment for him as he is one of the most exciting bowlers in the World Cup this year.
