Jofra Archer the promising young fast bowler of England is playing his debut match against the Australian Test side in Lord’s. Archer is inducted into the team after Anderson’s exclusion due to injury. Archer is the quickest fast bowler in the England camp and he certainly made use of his pace in the crucial Test match.
An Express quick bouncer struck Steve Smith at the speed of 146 kph when Smith was standing firm on 80 holding the Aussie innings together on 4th day of the 2nd Ashes Test. But Shoaib Akhtar is not happy with Archer. Here is why.
After Archer bowled that lethal delivery with struck Steve Smith on the neck and he was instantly down on the pitch laying in pain, Archer did not inquire of his pain/condition and went back straight back up to his bowling mark. Smith was not able to continue due to the excruciating pain and left the field in the cloud of BOO from the English crowd. Shoaib Akhtar the fastest bowler of Cricket history did not like this cold behaviour from the young fast bowler and here is what he said on his twitter handle about the whole incident and what he has to say about it.
Shoaib said that he always used to inquire about the batsmen whenever he had hit someone and he was always the first one to reach out to offer help. Shoaib termed Archer’s behaviour as “NOT NICE” and certainly is not happy about how Archer played the whole incident.
