Stokes issues Archer praise
Ben Stokes has talked up the uncapped Jofra Archer as a real talent and feels he would be a great addition to the England squad.
The 24-year-old Barbados-born seamer, who has emerged as a real find in the Indian Premier League for Rajasthan Royals, has a UK passport and qualifies for England through his father.
Although he is yet to represent England, many are tipping Archer to be fast-tracked through the system and Stokes believes he would be a great addition ahead of the World Cup later this year.
"Jofra makes any team better," said Stokes, speaking on The Doosra podcast.
"He is the most naturally gifted bowler I've seen and I don't think he realises how good he is.
"Some of the things he can do at the click of a finger are just 'wow'. It's pretty special to watch.
"You ask him to do something and he nails it straight away. To have somebody at the pace he bowls and the skills he has... the selectors are going to be scratching their heads and it's a great time to be an England fan and an England player."
