JOFRA ARCHER will rip through Australia in a stunning England test debut, Graeme Swann has predicted.
The Sussex quick looked dangerous in his first spell in Joe Root’s team last night, without taking a wicket.
But Three Lions legend Swann believes the 24-year-old with thrive on the big stage and help salvage his side after another batting flop.
Swann, a Betfair Ambassador, said: “There’s not too much pressure going onto Jofr, he’s more than capable of living up to expectation.
“I thought about that before the World Cup whether everyone had hyped him up too much and whether it would be hard for him to live up to it.
“He then bowled against South Africa in the World Cup and it was an eye-opener how good he was.
“I’d seen him bowl before that, but never that well. He thrives on pressure; he’s a world class performer.
“I’m just so glad he’s got a British passport and he’s playing for us. He is brilliant, he truly is a brilliant prospect.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Jofra had a stunning test debut and set the world alight.”
