Jofra Archer, in an interview with the BBC, said he had been looking for the World Cup medal in his new flat for over a week without any success. Archer said he had the World Cup 2019 medal hanging off a portrait and that he was not able to see the medal thereafter he moved to his new place.
“I had it hanging off a portrait someone did for me and sent to me, I had my medal hanging on that. I moved flat and the picture is on the new wall but there’s no medal,” Jofra Archer said.
“I turned the house upside down for about a week but I still haven’t managed to find it.
“I know it should be in the house so I will keep eyes out for it but I’ve gone mad looking for it already.”
Jofra Archer rose to prominence at the international level with his exploits in the 2019 World Cup for England. The pacer picked up 20 wickets and finished among the top 3 wicket takers in the quadrennial tournament.
In fact, England entrusted Archer with the responsibility of bowling in the Super Over of the dramatic final. Archer had to defend 15 runs and he successfully did so.
New Zealand scored 15 runs in chase of 16 in the Super Over but England were declared winners based on the controversial boundary-count rule which is no longer part of the International Cricket Council rulebook.
