Tino Best & Jofra Archer Engage in Twitter Battle Over Stuart Broad's Omission from Test Team

The ongoing Test match between England and West Indies has gained great attention worldwide, as cricket was making a comeback after 117 days, due to coronavirus. Apart from the new rules imposed by the ICC, one thing that became a big talking point was omission of Stuart Broad from the English side.

The latter expressed his displeasure for being left out of the team. Instead of him Mark Wood and Jofra Archer were picked in the team, who didn't bowl well in the first innings. That raised a few eyebrows.

Former West Indies bowler Tino Best was in particular perturbed was this omission of Broad. In fact he took to Twitter and took a dig at Archer.

“Honestly why Archer playing before Broad chaaaaa fair is fair tho, cause u have Wood bowling 90+ , And he’s bowling the same pace as Broad , I have no problem with Broad being pissed #EngVsWI ….. that’s not fair at all,” Best tweeted.

Archer too hit back at Best and said, “With all this knowledge how are you not a coach yet ?”

The spat did not stop there as Best came up with another reply.

“Don’t address me personally Young man , the fact remains your bowling toothpaste and u haven’t bowled Quickly since ASHES , now go sleep and get some rest for WI to beat ya ball in the second innings bye Jorfa,” Best replied.

“I’ve been frustrated, angry, gutted because it is quite a hard decision to understand. I’ve probably bowled the best I’ve ever bowled in the last couple of years. I felt like it was my shirt, particularly winning the Ashes and going to South Africa and winning there,” Broad said to Sky Sports ahead of day 3.
