'Archer makes any team better'

Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler were all praise for Jofra Archer, their team-mate at Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League and potentially with England as well, adding that the youngster has a good chance of making it to England's ICC World Cup squad.

Archer, who is yet to play a game for England, has 131 wickets at 23.44 in 28 first-class games. The Barbados-born all-rounder has just become eligible for England selection through his father.

In the meantime, he has been performing well in global T20 leagues. Stokes and Buttler, who play alongside Archer in Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, conceded that the England selectors will have a tough time while announcing the World Cup squad on April 17.

"Jofra makes any team better," Stokes said on the Doosra podcast on BBC. "He is the most naturally gifted bowler I've seenand I don't think he quite realises how good he is.”
