SUSSEX’S Jofra Archer will make his England debut against Ireland today aiming to prove his international pedigree.

And England captain Eoin Morgan has quashed any suggestions his fast-track into the squad so late in a four-year World Cup cycle could prove destabilising.

Archer, 24, Barbados born to an English father, qualified under revised residency rules last month.

The likes of David Willey, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes have all spoken about the situation recently and are disappointed at how their words were received in certain quarters, but Morgan made it clear that there will always be a warm welcome for one more talented individual.

Morgan said: “It’s not an issue. We’ve spoken about the quotes that came out and they were taken a little bit out of context.

“There’s no malice towards anybody coming in. Part of what we do is creating a healthy culture and an environment that is extremely welcoming and we’ve witnessed that over the weekend in the camp.

“I’m looking forward to him making his debut and Ben (Foakes) and Dawid (Malan) as well.”

The global Twenty20 circuit star was left out of England’s preliminary 15-man World Cup squad but has a maximum of seven matches to make his case for the final selection starting from today at Malahide.

Morgan added: “He is exciting, I’ve played against him for quite a while now and everyone has probably seen what he has done around the world in T20 franchise cricket.

“The attributes and skills he has shown there are good enough to play international cricket, it’s how he deals with the pressures that come with it and how he performs.”

Archer will make his debut alongside Ben Foakes and Dawid Malan.
