Cricket – Archer handed Jordan backing

Chris Jordan has backed Sussex colleague Jofra Archer to be a 'massive, massive asset' if he secures a place in the England squad for the upcoming World Cup. Archer recently qualified to be able to play for the Three Lions and his form both for his county and in various T20 leagues around the world means he has already come into the reckoning for the World Cup later this summer. And Jordan, who also played himself into contention with some strong performances in the West Indies, is confident that his team-mate would make a big impact for his country on home soil. He told Cricinfo: "Anyone of Jofra's calibre, anyone of his quality, you should be talking about him because his talent alone speaks for itself. "He can bat, he can bowl, he can field and he can do all of them to a very, very high level. If he does get the call he'll be a massive, massive asset to England." Hosts England are 9/4 with bet365 to win the World Cup this summer.
