Archer given chance to stake WC claim

London: Jofra Archer will have a chance to press his case for World Cup selection after the uncapped all-rounder was included Wednesday in a 17-man squad for next month’s one-day internationals against Ireland and Pakistan.
The dynamic Barbados-born all-rounder was left out of the 15-man preliminary World Cup squad also announced by tournament hosts England on Wednesday.
But England in common with all other teams, have a May 23 deadline to announce their final World Cup squad. Sussex star Archer, 24, has an English father and holds a British passport. (PTI)
