Jofra Archer 'more ready than ever' for Test cricket as Justin Langer questions Ashes readiness

England paceman Jofra Archer insists he is ready to rise to the challenge of Test cricket and warned Australia coach Justin Langer not to underestimate him. Archer is set to make his Test debut at Lord’s in the second match of the Ashes on Wednesday, the same venue where he played a starring role in the World Cup final a month ago. Langer says Australia’s plan for Archer is to ‘keep wearing him down, get him back into his second or third or fourth spells’ and backed Steve Smith and all his batsmen to deal with the challenge of facing Archer.
