‘Yeah bro skip IPL that’s nothing in front of WC’ – Twitter reacts after Jofra Archer said ‘2023 World Cup is the goal’

England’s paceman Jofra Archer recently made a return to the England Lions’ training camp which is being held in the United Arab Emirates. The right-arm pacer was out of cricketing action for a long time now. 

His last Test appearance came against Team India back in February 2021. Moreover, his last ODI appearance came against Australia in 2020. On the other hand, his last T20I appearance came against India in 2021.

He has been out of competitive cricket for more than a year due to injury concerns. Had it not been for his injury issues, he would have been a part of England’s project for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

However, the Three Lions went on to win the second T20 World Cup title by defeating Pakistan cricket team in the final. Talking about Jofra Archer, he recovered from his injury and is expected to make a debut for the national cricket team anytime soon.

Recently, a video clip featuring the Barbados-born paceman sweating it out at the nets went viral on the internet. After that, he was spotted bowling in the Lions’ Training camp in Abu Dhabi. 

Meanwhile, the right-arm paceman pitched in with a lethal delivery to England’s opener Zak Crawley. The right-handed batter didn’t have enough time to react to the swift delivery.

As it turned out, the ball quickly struck the batter’s helmet which caused a slight delay for a concussion test and luckily, nothing happened to Zak Crawley as he resumed his batting. 

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old who won the ICC ODI World Cup 2021 as a player had already set his new ambition which is to win the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, slated to be held in India next year. 

England cricket team etched their name into the record books after they accomplished the ODI World Cup and T20 World Cup in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
