Cricket has been exciting for me since wearing English jersey: Archer
Joffra Archer, the young fast bowler of the England cricket team, says that cricket has become exciting for him since he has worn an English jersey.
Archer got an opportunity to play in the Ashes series for the first time and he left no stone unturned to capitalize on it. The fifth and final Test match of the Ashes series was played at The Oval. England won the Test by 135 runs to level the series 2–2.
Archer took 6 wickets in the fifth Test. He was voted man of the match. While taking this award, Archer said, 'Cricket has become exciting for me after wearing the English jersey. It is really special to equalize the series. Test cricket is great for you. You have to face both good and bad days in the test.
Archer got a chance to play 4 Tests in this series in which he took a total of 22 wickets to his name. This fast bowler strongly appreciated the England team management. "The team management is very good," said Archer. I hope that I will continue to do well in the future.
Australia were leading 2–1 in the series and were trying to win the Ashes in England for the first time since 2001, but were prevented by the England team. Archer played the lead role in Atithi's defeat. Joffra took Australia's six wickets in the first innings.
