Two in a row for Jofra Archer! No, he wasn't bowling, but he still clean bowled his trolls on social media with a calm reply. Jofra responds, but he doesn't react to what they say. 

The English pacer is going to play his first Test this Wednesday at Lord's which is also the second encounter of Ashes 2019. Archer is looking forward to the challenge and wants to be on the honours board at Lord's.

Jofra has already played 14 ODIs and 1 T20I for England and has picked up 23 and two wickets, respectively. He isn't donning England's jersey for the first time. 

In fact, when Archer last played in Lord's, he was the hero for England. It was World Cup 2019 final where he defended 15 runs in the Super Over to secure England's first World Cup title.

Jofra feels this ground has more to offer, and he expressed a desire of being on the honours board in his tweet. "Would love to get on the honours board ????," he tweeted.

A fan came hard at him, advising him to concentrate on his game and not get cocky. He also added that his tweet would backfire if Archer fails with the ball.

"Just concentrate on doing it then...this tweet is going to look a little silly if you if you go for 1/175!", a fan named Neil responded.

Archer was very polite with him and replied, "Cheers, Neil!".

Not the first time Jofra has graciously responded to a Twitter user trying to go after him. A troll had called him ugly after he shared his first Vlog on Twitter. The England cricketer was very kind to call him handsome in return. Not engaging with the social media trolls is the best you could do.
