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.
He floated into the crease with good effect in 2017, too, with 61 wickets at 25 and an average of more than 45 with the bat, a bright aspect of Sussex’s flagging promotion campaign.
