Jofra Archer has been in the midst of a stunning run of form as he has been performing brilliantly for England and was one of the chief reasons why the World Cup hosts were able to register their first ever title win. Archer was in the thick of it all as he soaked in the pressure of the huge occasion at Lord’s and delivered the final Super Over in the dying moments of a dramatic clash to lead his team over the line.
The 24-year-old has had an interesting journey in the world of cricket as the Barbadian initially harbored dreams of representing the West Indies cricket team. However, he was left disheartened after he was excluded from the West Indies’ Under-19 World Cup in 2014 and subsequently made his mission to immigrate to England and play international cricket for his adopted home.
“I was left out of the Under 19 World Cup in 2014 and then I got injured shortly after. There was never really a chance of playing for the senior West Indies team. I got dropped and no-one looked out for me,” Archer told a local newspaper.
