LONDON, April 26: England pacer Jofra Archer has �gone mad� searching for his World Cup winners� medal that got misplaced while he moved into a new house which has been �turned upside down� during the coronavirus-forced lockdown.
�I had it (medal) hanging off a portrait someone did for me and sent to me, I had my medal hanging on that,� the 25-year-old fast bowler of Caribbean descent was quoted as saying by BBC Radio.
�I moved flat and the picture is on the new wall but there�s no medal. I turned the house upside down for about a week but I still haven�t managed to find it,� he added.
Archer played a part in England�s maiden World Cup triumph last year.
�I know it should be in the house so I will keep eyes out for it but I�ve gone mad looking for it already,� said the Barbados-born cricketer, who bowled the Super Over in the World Cup final against New Zealand at the Lord�s.
Archer, who made his international debut only last year, said the forced break due to the COVID-19 pandemic has given him time to search for the medal.
�There�s nothing else to do in isolation. It�s all hands on deck,� he said.
Asked what was his initial reaction when England skipper Eoin Morgan handed him the ball in the World Cup final Super Over, Archer said: �I wasn�t sure until I had to go down there and warm up.
�That doesn�t mean I didn�t want it, I just didn�t think I was in a position to volunteer. I was just coming into the team, I�d played the least amount of games in the squad. I didn�t think it was my time to volunteer,� he said. � PTI
