Jofra Archer recovers missing World Cup medal
It’s always in the last place you look!
A couple of days after admitting he has lost his World Cup medal while moving house, England pacer Jofra Archer has confirmed that the missing piece of his prized silverware has been recovered from his guest bedroom.
Archer, who made his international debut in 2019, was one of the star performers for England during their title-winning tenure in the 2019 World Cup. Picking 20 wickets at 23.05, the 25-year-old also bowled the Super Over in the final against New Zealand.
Having received the winner’s medal, the Barbados-born pacer admitted on Saturday that he had misplaced it when he moved house. However, two days of hardship eventually came to fruition when Archer finally revealed the silverware has been recovered. "Randomly searching the guest bedroom and boom," he wrote on Twitter.
"I had it hanging off a portrait someone did for me and sent to me, I had my medal hanging on that,” he had said on Saturday.
"I moved flat and the picture is on the new wall but there's no medal. I turned the house upside down for about a week but I still haven't managed to find it.
"I know it should be in the house so I will keep eyes out for it but I've gone mad looking for it already."
Given that the priceless possession has now been found, Archer also confirmed that it has been rightfully returned to where it belongs; alongside the portrait.
