New Delhi [India]: After being named in England’s 12-man squad for the second Ashes Test match, pacer Jofra Archer has set his sights to feature on the Lord’s Honours Board.
Archer took to Twitter on Mondy to express his desire as he wrote: “Would love to get on the honours board.”

The change was part of MCC’s refurbishment drive at the ‘Home of Cricket’ ahead of 2019 season.
England faced a 251-run defeat at the hands of Australia in the first Ashes Test match.
The second Ashes Test match between Australia and England will start from August 14.
