Archer makes history in his maiden World Cup

English pacer Jofra Archer has been one of the top performers of this year’s ICC Cricket World Cup as he has taken the most number of wickets for England after being fast tracked to the national side a couple of months ago.

The speedster has taken a total of 17 wickets in 9 games which have come at an average of 22.76. Archer has not only provided England with early breakthroughs with the new ball, but he has also showcased his abilities in the death overs by bowling some impressive variations.

The 24-year-old has surpassed legendary allrounder Ian Botham who took 16 wickets in the 1992 World Cup while Andrew Flintoff lies at the 3rd position on the list with 14 wickets from his 2007 World Cup campaign.

Mark Wood has also been the pick of the English bowlers as he shares the 2nd position in the above-mentioned list with Botham, having taken 16 wickets in 8 games of this year’s world event.
