Jofra Archer is the real threat – Younus Khan

“He has bite in his bowling and his high arm action is very good and gives him nip in his bowling. There is hype around him so that can be an added pressure on him. I have told the batsmen to play close to the body and play on the back foot because his in-swinger can be very dangerous,” he added.

Meanwhile, so far, the Barbados-born fast bowler Jofra Archer has represented England in seven Test matches. He posed all sorts of trouble during his debut series against Australia. He picked up 22 wickets in four matches and was the second-highest wicket-taker for England behind Stuart Broad.

Pakistan cricketers will stay in quarantine for 14 days before getting tested in Worcester before moving to Derbyshire’s Incora County Ground. The squad consists of 20 players and 11 support staff members.
