Senior English pacer Stuart Broad has said that Archer can blow away teams in test cricket.
"He's already been a successful international cricketer, having been involved in the World Cup win, but he's got some great attributes," Broad said after the end of the day's play while speaking at the press conference.
"These conditions at Lord's have been a bit favourable to the bowler on day one and day two, but that's not taking away anything he brings. You feel even on day four and day five pitches, with his height and bounce, he's going to bring the stumps into play.
"I don't think there are any doubts within the group or within the media that he has the attributes to be a Test cricketer. There's going to be times when he's going to blow teams away. What impressed me was his nagging line, the fact that he can bring all dismissals in. He's aggressive with his bouncer," he added.
"This is his first Test match. It's a big learning experience. You sometimes forget he's, what, 24?" Broad said.
"In our minds, because he's been involved in World Cups and been talked about so much in the last six months that we think he's a really experienced, older, knows-it-all cricketer. He's still learning his trade a little bit, although he's doing it with great success," he added.
