It doesn’t work like that,” he added.Meanwhile, former England skipper Michael Vaughan said he expects Archer to “have an impact” at Lord’s if he is given his debut.Archer grabbed the attention of the larger global cricketing audience with his exploits in the Indian Premier League before storming into the international cricket scene with his stellar performance in England’s successful 2019 World Cup campaign. The Barbados-born fast bowler has 131 wickets in 28 First Class matches and scored over 1,000 runs in the longer formats.The 24-year-old, however, has said that his performance in the World Cup should not lead to unreasonable expectations.advertisement”What I would say is don’t expect any miracles, firstly! Hopefully, I’m gonna make my debut sooner rather than later and I’ll come in and do what I can. I can’t work miracles – I’ll try to, but I don’t think that’s how it might pan out. I’ll try my best and I can only give my best,” he said.Also Read | Justin Langer expects David Warner to fire in 2nd Ashes Test: He’s got that look in his eyesAlso Read | I’ve never been better: Jofra Archer ahead of Ashes debutAlso Read | Ashes: Justin Langer expects flat and dry wicket at Lord’s in 2nd TestFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
