Former Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra has hailed Jofra Archer as the best performer among all talented young bowlers for the past 2-3 years. “I believe out of all the talented young bowlers we’ve seen over the past 2-3 years – Jofra Archer is number one. In the form of Jofra Archer, especially if he’s fit and fit – it will benefit the England team, ”Nehra said on the Star Sports show“ Cricket Connected ”.
The 41-year-old believes England skipper Joe Root will be in “a hard time” on bowlers to move forward. Nehra has supported the visitors to fight even at a similar wicket in Chennai, in the upcoming third test between India and England.
“Even though India sees a similar wicket as Chennai, England still has a solid line-up, the way Stuart Broad cuts legs and bowls from wicket to wicket; Jofra Archer plays to the beat and the rebound , Jimmy Anderson has experience with his swing and his reverse swing, ”said the former Indian cricketer.
Gautam Gambhir said the two teams would start the pink ball test at the Motera stadium on “equal terms”.
“It’s a new stadium, a new wicket and the test match will be played with the pink ball. Plus, it’s a new venue for both teams, so both teams will start on an equal footing.” said the former Indian opener.
The four-game test series between India and England is currently level 1-1.
