Archer excited by Ashes chance
England paceman Jofra Archer claims he is fit and raring to go but has told fans to not expect miracles against Australia this week.
The 24-year-old will make his Test debut at Lord's as he prepares to replace the injured James Anderson in the second Ashes Test.
England are hoping to level the series after losing by 251 runs at Edgbaston although there are some doubts around Archer's quality with the red ball.
He has made a name for himself in white-ball cricket, in particular at the recent World Cup where he helped England lift the trophy.
Archer has had to overcome a side strain in order to play at Lord's and the Sussex man says he is ready to make his bow in an Ashes contest.
He told Sky Sports: "Don't expect any miracles - I can only come in and do what I can and give my best. I can't work miracles but I will try to!
"I've played a lot more red-ball cricket than white-ball cricket and I think it is my preferred format. I believe in Test cricket you get more opportunity to redeem yourself.
"I am probably more ready than I have ever been - I bowled 50 overs in one game for Sussex, which I think was past the overs they told me to bowl! It was good practice.
[My fitness] has never been better. [My side strain] just needed to settle and we couldn't get that gap in the World Cup. After that it settled in a matter of days."
