Will England miss Jofra Archer in this World Cup?
Nasser Hussain, the England’s ex captain feels that they will miss Jofra Archer in this world cup; He stated that, “England have had to learn to live without Archer in all formats, but it’s most keenly felt in T20 cricket because he is one of the best in the world, whether it be wicket-taking with the new ball in his bowling at the death or with his economy rate,”Cricket Addictor
