England's Archer ready to play Windies

Friday's game between West Indies and England, will mark a first outing for Barbados-born Jofra Archer against a West Indies side containing several of his Caribbean friends and peers. The 24-year-old suggested at the weekend he would be treating the game like any other, but Bayliss believes it would only be normal if the stakes were slightly elevated.

Archer was offered a chance to make it in English county cricket after being overlooked for the West Indies Under-19 World Cup squad in 2015 and a late bid to bring him back into the fold failed after England's interest became clear. 'He's looking forward to it, obviously knows a few guys in their team,' said coach Bayliss.
