Jofra Archer’s teams bicker over ‘pace machine’ after World Cup inclusion

2 months ago


Jofra Archer’s domestic teams enjoyed a humorous exchange after the Rajasthan Royals congratulated “our pace machine” on his World Cup selection.

The 24-year-old pace bowler was one of 15 to be selected for England, who will also host the 2019 50-over tournament along with Wales.

Archer recently starred for the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League – “HE’S IN!!!!! Our pace machine is heading to the @icc #CWC19!” the Royals’ Twitter account posted.

However the Royals aren’t the only side the Barbados-born star has appeared for. Archer also plays for Sussex, and has starred for the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League too.

“‘Your’ pace machine…?” Sussex’s Twitter account replied, adding a couple of emoji for good measure while the Hurricanes got involved as well.

“Play nicely guys,” Archer replied, before Sussex and the Royals posted memes to suggest they had settled their differences.

England will kick their World Cup campaign off on Thursday 30 May against South Africa at the Kia Oval in London.
