LONDON – Newly-minted England fast bowler, Jofra Archer, believes he is well prepared for the challenges of the ICC World Cup despite his lack of experience in One-Day Internationals (ODIs).

The Barbadian, who qualifies for England through his British father, was on Tuesday named in the Lions’ final 15-man World Cup squad after playing a mere three ODIs earlier this month.

Archer, however, has had a couple of seasons in both the Indian Premier League and the Australian Big Bash and believes the demands of franchise cricket have served him well.

“I think I’m ready. I’ve played a lot of cricket outside of 50-over, so I know how to deal with pressure – crowds. I think I am ready,” he told Sky Sports. (CMC)
