Steve Harmison said that I’d love to have him in the squad, he’s game-changing but if you take him as a travelling reserve, without any cricket.
Steve Harmison on Jofra Archer
“I say this purely from Jofra’s point of view, England shouldn’t even be looking at him,”. He said.
“I think it might be a little bit cruel, wouldn’t even take him. I think Jofra needs to find a way back into cricket, possibly away from England, just go and enjoy getting back on the field again. Getting back on the field during a World Cup is just asking too much of somebody who has been out for such a long time. I don’t think it’s fair on him. I think there’s a human element to it.”. Steve Harmison said
“This lad has been through the ringer for such a long time and I think just give him a break and let him ease back into cricket. I’d love to have him in the squad. He’s game-changing but if you take him as a travelling reserve, without any cricket. I think that’s a bit of an ask.”. Steve Harmison added
“England have decided they’re going to try and do that and I hope for Jofra’s sake he doesn’t get thrown into the heat of the battle. It won’t be his elbow this time. It’ll be some other part of his body that breaks down if he’s asking his body to do something it hasn’t done for quite some time, no matter how much training you’ve done.”
Steve Harmison further said that
“When you’re in the middle, it’s completely different to bowling in the nets. So I’d like to think England can get through this whole World Cup without him.”
