England lead pacer Jofra Archer made an appearance for Sussex's second XI as he geared up for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. The global showpiece is set to begin in June in the USA and the West Indies.


Previously, Archer was named in England's T20 World Cup 2024 squad but has played very little professional cricket after his stress fracture which sidelined him for almost a year.


In a lively spell for Sussex's second XI, after being parachuted in for the fourth day's play, Archer took a wicket in six impressive overs, said a report on icc-cricket.com.

Archer hit his straps in terms of pace and bounce, and his sharp spell strengthened the belief that the seamer could finally be ready for some international action when England takes on Pakistan next week in a bilateral series ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024.

England's captain Jos Buttler was pleased to see Archer get back into action but chose to play down the expectations ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024.

"Everyone knows what he is capable of and the attitude he possesses," Buttler told the PA Media. "As a captain, he is someone you can always turn to in a game because he always has a trick up his sleeve.

"It's great to be able to call on him but it's important to manage expectations. He has been out of it for a while now so we will need to look after him and realise that it might just take him a little while to be the Jofra of 2019," he added.

"He is a proper superstar, but we do have to be smart with him. It's a jump in intensity from what he's doing now to international cricket and you can't really replicate it," Buttler concluded.

England are drawn in Group B at the T20 World Cup 2024 alongside Australia, Namibia, Scotland and Oman.
