We will have a look at Archer against Pakistan - Morgan

England captain Eoin Morgan has confirmed that Jofra Archer's audition for the World Cup will be during the ODI series against Pakistan, which begins from May 8.

"The hype about Jofra playing around the world and doing well and attracting a lot of attention is justified as he has put in performances that warrant looking at," said Morgan. "Trevor Bayliss said after the West Indies series we will look at him against Pakistan and that's what we will do. We don't have to name our (World Cup) squad until the end of the Pakistan series so we'll have a look and see how he goes.”
