ICC World Cup 2019: Watch – Jofra Archer’s Delivery Goes 54 Meters After Hitting Stumps

England’s rookie gun fast bowler Jofra Archer can work up some serious pace. Archer was able to find the gulf between the bat and pad of Bangladesh’s opener Soumya Sarkar to hit the top of the off-stump. The fast bowler’s speed was so much that the ball carried all the way to the boundary after hitting the stumps. In fact, in the replays shown, the ball covered a distance of 54 metres.

Archer has been right on the money with his bullets and he was bowled with sheer pace. In fact, the fastest ball of the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 is bowled by Jofra Archer as he has touched 153 km/h.
