Jofra Archer Exclusive: 'You Definitely Get A Good Laugh Out Of My Tweets'

Jofra Archer Exclusive: 'You Definitely Get A Good Laugh Out Of My Tweets'

Jofra Archer has opened up about his viral tweets by saying that he is baffled at how fans continue to dig up his messages that 'predicted the future.'

The 24-year-old has become one of England's fastest rising stars and was pivotal in England's World Cup victory on home soil this summer.

And a hilarious subplot to Archer's World Cup heroics were his tweets from years ago that seemingly predicted what was to come.

"Wouldn't mind a super over," was one such tweet from July 2015 that resurfaced as England beat New Zealand in a super over in the final at Lord's on 14th July.

Speaking to SPORTbible at the team reveal for The Hundred, the England fast bowler said it was "funny" to see fans' reactions to his now-viral tweets.

He continued: "You definitely get a good laugh out of them. I don't even know how people find them.

"I can't scroll past 2017 in my history and I've seen people bring stuff up from '14, '15, '16."

England teammate Jonny Bairstow also told SPORTbible that it was "amazing" to see Archer's different 'predictions' come to fruition.

"From like six years ago when he was tweeting stuff and then half of it comes true this summer," he said.

"We were looking [at his tweets] and were going, 'Is this a fake account?'

"Yeah, it was fascinating."

Archer, who has been named in England's Test squad for the upcoming tour to New Zealand, has also secured his place in the upcoming Hundred.

The Hundred will introduce a 100-ball cricket tournament in July 2020 and has eight city-based franchise teams, consisting of both male and female sides, against one another.

The England star, who has signed for Southern Brave, said that the team reveal for The Hundred "went really smoothly."

He continued: "I think it will generate a lot of interest today and as the year goes on leading up to the first game.

"Everyone will want to know what we're doing right [now] in England especially, so I don't think there could have been a better time to start it."
