After their success at the 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, Ace England’s fast bowler Jofra Archer said his team could make history by winning the World Cup title in a row.
England won for the first time the World Cup trophy over 50 after an everlasting final at Lord’s against New Zealand. Now, Archer said, they’ve turned their attention to the T20 World Championship next year, which will be held in Australia.
“Hopefully we can win the T20 World Cup next year,” Archer told The Telegraph. “We want to climb the ranking in the Test Championship, I think we can make history, we’ve already started.
“Hopefully we can win [world championships] twice in a row, who said that in the group we’re in, they’re all about the same age and we’ll be together for many more years.”
England won the 50-over-crown in a dramatic way. After scoring New Zealand’s points, both teams were also on equal terms after the subsequent Super Over and made England the winner with a superior limit.
Archer played an important role. With 21 wickets in his kitten, he finished the tournament as England’s highest wicket-taker and also delivered the Super Over.
“I was not nervous at all – probably because I had not noticed it until 30 seconds ago,” he said, looking back. “Everyone could have played the Super Over, we never got another chance, we lost a lot, there’s always a game, and right now it’s still early in my career.”
Ending an unforgettable summer on a high ✨
Congratulations to @JofraArcher and @englandcricket on winning the last Ashes Test of the summer, and for everything else you’ve achieved over the last few months! pic.twitter.com/m397smYWfc— Sussex Cricket (@SussexCCC) September 15, 2019
Archer pursued his World Cup success with a spectacular debut test series in the Ashes 2019, in which four tests gave him 22 wickets with an average of 20.27. Archer’s fearsome pace made Australia struggling as his fight against Steve Smith-led to one of the most exciting subplots in a contested series.
“I know pretty well what to do when it comes to cricket,” Archer said. “I’m in a state where I know how to take care of myself, and I’ve found what works for me and what does not.”
