Little chance of Jofra Archer making England’s World Cup squad, says Eoin Morgan

Little chance of Jofra Archer making England's World Cup squad, says Eoin Morgan

IPL star Jofra Archer’s chances of making England’s World Cup squad look to be slim even if the England & Wales Cricket Board fast track his qualification.

There have been unofficial discussions within the ECB about reverting back to a four-year qualification period to keep in line with ICC standards, which would mean Archer would be eligible for international cricket next year.

“Providing everyone is fit, I think so,” said Morgan when asked if he thought it was too late for Archer. “He’s a guy that if he was English qualified we’d have looked at him after maybe the Bangladesh [Premier] league (in November). He would have gone on some Lions and from there seen what happened.”
