Jofra Archer Complete Bio & Career

Jofra Archer has rapidly become one of the most exciting young allrounders in English county cricket. Born in Barbados to an English father and Bajan mother, he is ambitious to follow his Sussex teammate Chris Jordan into the England side. It was Jordan who first alerted Sussex to Archer's talents after facing him in a net session in Barbados and his assessment that "the sky is the limit" has been borne out by batting and bowling spells of great promise.
It would be a seven-year qualification to play for England, not complete until 2022-23 which at the speed he is developing would deny international cricket of a gifted cricketer for around four years, frustration no doubt for West Indies cricket. He played for West Indies under 19s in 2013 but after suffering a serious back injury he slipped out of the Barbados system. Instead, he rallied while playing for Sussex's second XI and for Horsham in the Sussex Premier League. After a great 2017 county season, he was roped in by Hobart Hurricanes where he attracted a lot of eyeballs. He was noticed from there by most of the IPL franchise. He was eventually sold at a whopping 7.2 crores at the IPL auction 2018 to Rajasthan Royals. He had a great outing in his second BBL outing as well and has also qualified to play for England for the ICC World Cup 2019.
After having qualified to play for England, he was given a few opportunities before the world cup in which he didn't dissappoint and was thus included in the World Cup 2019 squad.
