Iceland Cricket trolls Jofra Archer after his tweet mentioning James Anderson’s availability in the one-off Test between England and Ireland
Iceland Cricket’s Twitter handle has gained widespread popularity and fame ever since the 2019 World Cup. Its Twitter handle is known for posting some humorous stuff and sarcastic jibes particularly aimed at England Cricket and their players.
While on most occasions they look for content worth taking a jibe at, this particular one from England’s pacer Jofra Archer, was worth a dig and Iceland Cricket made sure they pounced on it real quick.
England is presently playing a one-off Test match versus Ireland at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground. Archer, who is quite active on social media posted a tweet pertaining the seamer friendly conditions on the first day of the Test.
But, one of his tweet was perhaps posted by the pacer while he was apparently daydreaming.
What did Jofra Archer tweet?
Quite impressed by the decent swinging and seaming conditions at Lord’s, Archer had tweeted- “Love to see bowler friendly conditions , Jimmy and broad will be unstoppable”.

It is worth mentioning that England’s playing 11 versus Ireland was announced a day before the match day. And the veteran fast bowler had failed to make the cut into the line-up due to his calf muscle injury.
Ireland Cricket’s twitter handle manager was quick to realize the error made by the 24-year-old and tweeted with the touch of sarcasm for which they are known for.
They tweeted- ” “Who is going to tell him? #ENGvIRE On a serious point, is this a sign of England having switched off? A player who hopes to make his debut in the Ashes next week doesn’t know what’s happening in his team’s current match. Caught napping?”
They pointed out the fact that the person who hopes to make his Ashes debut, about to commence in the beginning of next month, doesn’t even know who are the players featuring in his team’s playing eleven!
Who is going to tell him? #ENGvIRE
