Meanwhile, the fast bowler suggests England to make the most of the recent success. He asks the board to help the youngsters pick the game as a long-term sport and serve their respective country. He also asks youngsters to never give up.
”I’ve seen many videos of kids playing, doing their celebrations in the back garden,” he said. I think the World Cup is going to get spoken about for many years to come. We do need to use it. I think we need to push it a lot further,” Jofra Archer said.
“Look at the kids. It’s wet and muddy but I don’t think they care. It makes us happy to see them playing and wanting to do better.” Never give up,” he said. “If no one believes in you, you have to believe in yourself. You never know where cricket can take you in two weeks, two months or a year… Anything is possible.”

“We want to climb the rankings in the Test Championship. I think we can make history,” he said. We have started already. Hopefully, we can win back-to-back (World Cups). Who’s to say we can’t? Everyone is around the same age in the group we have got together. We will be together for a lot more years.”
As Jofra Archer said, this would be the perfect opportunity for the England board to inject the game of cricket in the youngsters.
