He picked 16 wickets at a strike rate of fewer than 3 overs. He was the only bowler for the ‘Men In Purple’ to bowl a maiden over in the tournament.

International career

The ECB had a rule that a player who has moved to England after the age of 18 could represent England in international cricket only after living in the country for at least 7 years. Therefore, Archer was not eligible to play until 2022.

He picked 20 wickets in just 11 matches. He also bowled the all-important super over of the most dramatic World Cup Final. ECB’s decision to change the rules proved crucial as England won their first-ever World Cup trophy at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. After the tournament ended, the ICC named him the rising star of the squad.

Just 3 weeks after the Final, Archer made his Test debut in the 2nd Ashes Test at Lord’s. It was a low-scoring encounter as England scored 258 twice, and Australia chased down 267 in the second innings with 4 wickets in hand. Archer scored 12 runs in the first innings.
