Stuart Board about Jofra archer
“I don’t think there are any doubts within the group or within the media that he has the attributes to be a Test cricketer. There’s going to be times when he’s going to blow teams away. What impressed me was his nagging line, the fact that he can bring all dismissals in. He’s aggressive with his bouncer,” Broad was quoted saying by Cricbuzz.
“This is his first Test match. It’s a big learning experience. You sometimes forget he’s what, 24? In our minds, because he’s been involved in World Cups and been talked about so much in the last six months that we think he’s a really experienced, older, knows-it-all cricketer. He’s still learning his trade a little bit, although he’s doing it with great success,” Broad said.
“We bowled well at him today. The biggest thing with that was there a little bit of nibble in the pitch. Chris Woakes bowled with three slips and a gully – a regulation field. Ben Stokes bowled a couple of beauties at him outside off stump. With world-class players, you always have to adapt to the conditions that are in front of you and conditions today at Lord’s suggested we should bowl six of our best balls and question their outside edge,” Broad added.
