England are scheduled to kickstart their international summer by hosting New Zealand in a two-match Test series followed by a five-match rubber against India later in the summer.
Jofra Archer, who returned to competitive cricket this week, looked in full flow alongside his partner-in-crime Ollie Robinson as they combined to take five wickets against Kent.
The duo of Jofra Archer and Ollie Robinson took a wicket each in the second innings too.
”Hopefully, Ollie Robinson will get his [England] chance this summer,” Jofra Archer told thecricketer.com. “We all know what he can do, he’s a talented bowler and his stats prove that.” he added.
Archer, who bowled a fiery spell in the first innings following his return to cricket after a layoff due to his elbow issues and the surgery that he underwent on his hand following a freak fish tank incident last January, also opened up about his fitness.
“My fitness is fine, I thought I bowled okay. I played in the second team (against Surrey) last week and it’s good to get some confidence I felt fine. I bowled in short spells for protection in case we had a long day but it was overcast, which helped a bit. There was a bit of management, but it all worked out,” he added.
As far as Ollie Robinson is concerned, the fast bowler is the third-highest wicket-taker in the ongoing County Championship, having claimed 25 wickets in just four games at an average of 13.80.
The Sussex cricketer has thus far featured in 62 First-Class games and has claimed 275 wickets at an average of 21.05 with as many as 16 five-wicket hauls against his name.
