Accolade for Bajan cricketer Jofra Archer

WINNER: Jofra Archer, left, receives his award from a Porsche representative

BARBADOS-BORN Jofra Archer has landed himself the Porsche Performance of the Month Award for June.

The fast bowler, who has aspirations to play for England, was presented with his gong on day one of the recent Specsavers County Championship match with Leicestershire, at The Rathbones Arundel Festival of Cricket, as voted for by Sussex’s Twitter followers.


Archer scooped the award after claiming match figures of 11 for 137 against Leicestershire, when he helped guide his team to a five-wicket win at Grace Road.

A six wicket haul for Archer, to go with the five he took in the first innings, left Sussex favourites to win on day three. Archer wins the use of a Porsche, supplied by the centre in Burgess Hill, for a weekend which will be the second time this season.

Bridgetown-born Archer, 22, recently told Sky Sports that he would jump at the opportunity to play for England.
