His latest video on Tiktok has gone viral and it is quite relatable to all the viewers.

Therefore, he heads back to his room- raising awareness among fans.

If things go smooth, Archer might be seen in action against West Indies in June. A stress fracture to his right elbow ruled him out of the IPL. However, as things stand, the Indian Premier League has been postponed for the time being. All cricketing affairs across the globe have been called-off.
