Today England announced their main squad for world cup 2019. England selected Jofra archer in the world cup squad. After selected in England’s world cup squad, Jofra Archer talked with Sky sports in the show.
Jofra Archer told Sky Sports News,
“I got a call from Ed Smith yesterday, maybe at about six o’clock or so. I was actually driving at the time and I just felt the phone vibrate and I answered it without looking at it, then that to stop myself and say ‘good evening.’
“I think I’m ready. I’ve played a lot of cricket outside of 50 overs. I’d quite like to get Virat out, because I wasn’t able to get him in the IPL. I think a leggie got him in every game he played. I also wanted to bowl at AB [de Villiers] as well, but don’t think he’s playing for South Africa. And probably Chris Gayle again.”
“I think I probably have a bigger advantage over some of the other guys in our team. We play [these guys] twice an [season] in the IPL, so you know their weaknesses, you know their strengths, you know if they can’t run between the wickets … it gets you an extra bit of inside information.”
“To be honest, I think international cricket is probably the same intensity as the IPL. I think the only thing that changes is the amount of overs but, ever since I’ve started, the pressure is really intense. It’s different, but it still isn’t different,” Jofra Arched added
“And I know to deal with the pressure of crowds. Obviously because I was playing franchise cricket, that was the reason why it wasn’t able to play much List A cricket for Sussex, but you don’t forget how to bowl. And I think you get more opportunities to bowl than in T20s, you get another six extra overs there to take more wickets,” he further added.
