Ashes: Langer expects flat and dry wicket at Lord’s

Ashes: Langer expects flat and dry wicket at Lord’s”

Perhaps ominously for England, he maintained he felt he was only just getting into his rhythm on day five of the first Test when his 4-32 helped Australia to victory.

Langer admitted to being curious on how Jofra Archer is going to fare on his debut. Archer is an immensely exciting bowler and on top of the world right now after his heroics in the World Cup. "I can't work miracles but I will try to!" the 24-year-old told reporters on Tuesday. "I haven't played a lot of red-ball [cricket] coming into the first day's play, and I think just trying to find that tempo of Test cricket - it's slightly different to white ball, and I think mixed into that the excitement and the nerves of the first spell in Ashes over here", ESPN Cricinfo quoted Cummins as saying.

"In 50 overs, it's 10 overs [for a bowler] and that's it".

"He's been their highest wicket-taker and is arguably the best bowler in the last few Ashes series".

Australia coach Langer is "curious" to see how Archer holds up to the rigours of Test cricket, saying his side will look to "wear down" the paceman. "There were some good things to come out of Worcester".

Jofra Archer responded, "Cheers", to the fan's tweet in a way accepting the challenge and will now be chuffed about making a telling impact in the most important game for England. He bowled the most overs in the first Test, but depends on how the game goes and how many overs he bowls. It was good practice.

"He´s got the X factor", Buttler said of his fellow World Cup victor.

Warner's long time batting advisor Trent Woodhill was also on hand at Lord's and spent time with his former pupil, who made just two and eight at Edgbaston, in the indoor nets. I want to get every batter out.

Looking ahead to a possible Test debut at the venue where England won the World Cup, Archer added: "To be at Lord's, a ground where I have had recent success will be comforting. It's a good thing most of the guys in the Test team were part of that".

Leach's last appearance at Lord's saw him famously score 92 as a nightwatchman as England overcame a terrible first innings to beat Ireland in an Ashes warm-up.
