MANCHESTER: West Indies great Michael Holding urged England fast-bowler Jofra Archer to block outside noise after he was subjected to heavy criticism for breaking the bio-secure bubble in Southampton.
Archer returned to the England playing XI for the third and final #raisethebat Test in Manchester after being axed for second Test at the same venue. Holding stated Archer will benefit from being among friends in the team and all he has to do to block 'outside noise' is to perform at his optimum level in the third and final Test against West Indies.
"To be honest, I don't think it should be that difficult," said former fast bowler Holding on Sky Sports Cricket. "The environment in which he is, is he's in a team that has just won the last Test match. He's amongst friends in the England team; he has Ben Stokes, who he is very close to, who is a personable person and also a positive person. " IANS
