THE COACH who played an influential role in the early development of Barbadian-born English fast bowler Jofra Archer says there is no “bad blood” regarding his decision not to play international cricket for the West Indies.

Nhamo Winn, the successful cricket master at the Christ Church Foundation School, where Archer had his first taste of cricket as a teenager, told the daily Guardian newspaper in England that it was a “career decision”.

“He made a career decision as a young man [to move to England] and I respected it. What he went through from when he was very young in terms of not getting the attention he needed, he made a choice based on trying to get out of hardship and make things better for himself and his family,” Winn said.
