Full Tilt Bowling by Jofra Archer
Jofra Archer bowls full tilt for England against Pakistan in a pre-tour match.
In preparation for their first tour of Pakistan in 17 years, England’s Test team is currently in the United Arab Emirates for a training camp. Before departing for Pakistan later this week, the national team is currently playing a three-day practice match against the England Lions.
Star pacer Jofra Archer, who has been sidelined with an injury, started bowling for the Lions on the first day of practice. Archer bowled nine overs, according to Telegraph.co.uk, and recorded figures of 9-1-38-0. Archer troubled the England openers despite not picking up a wicket, even hitting Zak Crawley in the helmet.
Next month, England and Pakistan will face off in three tests. Beginning on December 1, the first Test will be played in Rawalpindi. The final test will take place at Karachi’s National Stadium from December 17 to 21, while the second test will begin on Friday, December 9, in Multan. Rehan Ahmed, an all-rounder from Leicestershire who is 18 years old, has been added to England’s squad for the tour of Pakistan, it was announced on Wednesday.
If given the opportunity, Ahmed will surpass Yorkshire’s Brian Close, who played for the Three Lions at the age of 18 years and 149 days against New Zealand in July 1949, as the youngest player to represent England in Tests.
