MANCHESTER, July 23: Veteran England pacer James Anderson reckons both he and Jofra Archer should play the series-decider against the West Indies but insisted his fellow speedster should first figure if he is in right frame of mind to play.

The 25-year-old Archer had claimed that he was subjected to racist abuse on

social media for breaking the bio-bubble protocol.

The visit to his home in Brighton led to his axing from the second Test.

He was placed in five days of isolation at Old Trafford�s on-site hotel and was also fined at a disciplinary hearing.

�We�ve not seen much of Jofra because he�s obviously been in isolation for a few days but, knowing him as I do, I�m sure he�ll want to play in this game, with it being so crucial and the series resting on it.

�Over the next few days he�s going to have to sit down with the captain and coach and figure out if he is in the right place to play,� Anderson said on Wednesday, responding to Archer�s claim.

Archer has been on the receiving end of racist abuse in the past, notably during the second Test defeat by New Zealand last year.

�The scrutiny is always something that can be difficult for guys coming into the international set-up because it is very different; you do feel more under the spotlight and it�s just finding coping methods for that, finding ways of dealing with the extra attention,� Anderson said. � PTI
