Jofra Archer is making huge impact in his first game at world Cup. He has forced Hashim Amla to retire hurt and has taken two South Africa wickets already.
South Africa suffered a big blow early in its chase of 312 against England in the first World Cup 2019 contest at The Oval.
Hashim Amla, the South African top-order batsman, was struck on the grille of his helmet by a rising delivery from Jofra Archer, the England fast bowler, and made to retire hurt. He was batting on 5 when he received a sharp, short delivery from Archer; he looked to pull it away but couldn’t manage it.
After a visit by the physio, Amla walked off.
