Jofra Archer Bags First International Wicket in Over a Year in T20I Against Pakistan

England speedster Jofra Archer made a triumphant return to international cricket by taking his first wicket in over a year during the first T20I against Pakistan at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Saturday, May 25. The Barbadian bowler achieved this milestone by dismissing Azam Khan at a crucial point in the match.

The pivotal dismissal occurred in the 12th over of Pakistan’s innings. Khan, looking dangerous with two boundaries, attempted an ambitious aerial drive over the covers. However, he failed to clear Moeen Ali, who took a straightforward catch. Notably, this delivery was Archer’s fastest inning, clocking in at 90 mph.

In addition to removing Azam Khan, the 29-year-old Archer also claimed the wicket of Imad Wasim, finishing with impressive figures of 4-0-28-2. Despite his successful spell, Archer’s return wasn’t without challenges, as he conceded 15 runs in his first over.

Archer’s performance, marked by his sheer pace and skill, was a significant boost for England, underscoring his importance to the team’s bowling attack. His return to form is eagerly anticipated by fans and teammates alike, as England continues its preparation for upcoming international fixtures.
