England and Pakistan are trying to fine-tune their teams for the Cricket World Cup, with opens in less than three weeks in London, but the weather had other ideas on Wednesday when the teams were able to get in only 19 overs of their first one-day international match. But even in that shortened contest — which ended with no result — England’s newest rising star, 24-year-old Barbados-born Jofra Archer, may have bowled his way onto the country’s World Cup team, according to CricInfo. Archer got in only four overs but stymied Pakistan’s attack, allowing just six runs — four on one boundary — and claiming the wicket of Fakhar Zaman. Now Archer will give England a second look in the ODI match that will live stream from Southampton.
