Bowler Kemar Roach has declared that “there will be no friendship” when West Indies face England fast-bowler, Jofra Archer during the upcoming Test series.
Barbados-born Archer played three times for the West Indies Under-19s before opting to play for England before playing for his new adopted team against the Windies side in the ICC World Cup in 2019.
This summer will be the first time that will face time that he will come up against them in a Test match.
Fellow Barbadian Roach said: “It is all about playing hard cricket and winning.
“Jofra’s made a decision and I think that he’s doing a fantastic job for his career.
“Obviously there will be no friendship at the start of this series.
“It’s all about winning and playing our cricket. If we come up against Jofra, we will devise a fantastic plan to counter it. I’m looking forward to the battle”.
Archer claimed 20 wickets to help England win the maiden 50-over World Cup in 2019, before making his Test debut in the Ashes series against Australia.
