Jofra Archer added to his wicket haul in his hotly anticipated international return as England beat Pakistan in T20 action.

Sussex’s pace bowler took another wicket at The Oval on Thursday evening, dismissing Babar Azam on 36 runs and sparking a batting collapse.

Archer ended the final warm up for the T20 World Cup with the single wicket for 31 runs off 3.5 overs as England secured a three wicket win to take the series 2-0.

England’s high-speed bowling attack with Archer and the returning Mark Wood proved crucial. Archer added another wicket having taken two in his return from injury at Edgbaston.

Wood says there will be “no excuses” from England despite a disrupted warm-up but praised Archer for his return to action.

He said: “The mark of Jofra is that he is always in the game, always at people. There is always a chance of wickets and him changing the game.

“I have played with Jofra before, and I don’t see it’s like me or him. I don’t see why we can’t play together.

“I don’t see why we can’t play in the same team, but maybe it is up to the management to manage our bodies and see how we get through the tournament.”
