ICC World Cup 2019: Jofra Archer Expresses Desire to Bag the Wickets of Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle in the Showpiece Event
After finally making the England World Cup squad for the 2019 World Cup, Jofra Archer is aiming high and hoping to make his first World Cup outing a pretty memorable one. Jofra Archer wasn’t picked the preliminary squad but after impressive performances in the series against Pakistan, the England selectors had no options but to go with him. He is a very consistent bowler who has the ability to click more than 140 km/hr.
Meanwhile, David Willey was surprisingly dropped from the squad in favour of Archer. On the other hand, Liam Dawson was also drafted into the squad in favour of James Vince. Meanwhile, James Vince also broke into the World Cup squad as Alex Hales was removed from the squad after testing positive to a recreational drug for the 2nd time in a few months.
As Jofra Archer prepares for the World Cup, he has expressed his desire to dismiss India skipper Virat Kohli. He is definitely the greatest batsman of the modern generation. Archer who was a superstar for Rajasthan Royals despite playing with Virat Kohli in the IPL didn’t manage to bag his wicket. He also wants to get the prized wicket of Windies opener Chris Gayle.
“I would quite like to get Virat out,” Jofra Archer was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “I wasn’t able to get him in the IPL. And probably Chris Gayle again but I want to have an impact in whatever games I do play in and take as many wickets as possible.”
The Men in Blue and the hosts England will lock horns in a huge clash on 30th June in Edgbaston. Archer might have sent a formal warning to Virat, he is also well aware of the fact that the Indian skipper is the greatest modern day batsman. Meanwhile, Jofra Archer also made the World Cup squad on the basis of his consistent performance in T20 Leagues all across the globe. He can also clock more than 140 km/hr on a consistent basis.
Meanwhile, he further added that Jos Buttler, his English teammate is the toughest batsman he has ever bowled to. “He is a 360 cricketer,” Archer said. “He can hit you straight down the ground or over the keepers head. I don’t think anywhere is safe with him.”
