JOFRA ARCHER says he is ready for the biggest stage after landing a place in England’s World Cup squad.

The Sussex paceman was named in Eoin Morgan’s 15-man party, given the nod after impressing in the recent series against Pakistan.

Archer, 24, was born in Barbados but has an English father and became available for the country this year after laws were changed.

He has gained experience of the big occasion playing in the Big Bash and Indian Premier League as well as helping Sharks to the Vitality Blast final last year.

Archer said: “I think I’m ready. I’ve played a lot of cricket, I know how to deal with pressure, crowds, I think I’m ready.

“Obviously because of that cricket, that was the reason I wasn’t able to play much List A for Sussex. But you don’t forget how to bowl. I think it (IPL cricket) probably has given me a bigger advantage over some of the other guys in our team.

“We play them (big names) twice in the IPL, you know their weaknesses, strengths, if they can’t run between the wickets, you get extra bits of inside information.

“To be honest I think international cricket is the same intensity as the IPL, the only thing that’s changed is the amount of overs.

“I think I played some of the Pakistani players as well. It’s different but it still isn’t different.”

Archer has impressed in recent one-day internationals against Pakistan and Ireland and says he has been welcomed into a tight-knit squad.

He added: “Everyone welcomed me with open arms from the moment I got in.

“It’s a really good team to be part of, great team, captain, support staff, one of the better teams I’ve played in.”

Archer was selected ahead of David Willey in the final 15.

Hampshire spinner Liam Dawson, who did not play in the recent series against Pakistan, was picked after impressive performances in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Joe Denly missed the cut along with Willey and Chris Jordan, who had already been released to rejoin Sussex.
