'He Can Bowl Super Fast': Morgan Names The Quickest England Bowler
England's decision to unleash their two express fast bowlers rocked India in the first T20 International between the two sides here at the Narendra Modi Stadium here on Friday.
Both Jofra Archer (3/23) and Mark Wood (1/20) conceded just 43 runs in eight overs picking four wickets between them as India were restricted to just 124/7 in their 20 overs. England then coasted to an eight-wicket win.
"That (to go with express pace) was certainly the intention. Jofra's strength is that he can bowl really fast among others but certainly Mark Wood's super strength is that he can bowl super fast. It is hard to do all the time but when he bowls like tonight it is very good entertainment," said England captain Eoin Morgan after the match on Friday night.
"The wicket was as expected. The plans were very basic -- to bowl on a length and straight. Couldn't ask for more from the bowlers... He (Archer) is excellent. Like our batting unit, our bowling unit has competition for places," added Morgan.
