Archer Gets England Clearance

Sussex all rounder Jofra Archer is on course to make his debut for England next season and could even feature in the World Cup.

The Barbados-born star has an English father but was not eligible to play for England under the previous rules but the ECB has now amended its regulations and Archer, who has an English father, will be able to play for Joe Root’s team next summer.

A good athletic fielder who can score some useful late runs, Archer regular bowls at over 90mph and could well have a long career ahead of him in an England shirt.

Sussex say Archer is likely to qualify “at some point in March 2019” depending on the amount of time he spends out of the UK during the rest of 2018-19.
