Jofra Archer is confident of staying calm in England's clash against New Zealand in the World Cuo 2019 finals on Sunday. The Barbados-born player, who made his debut for the country just two months ago, had become eligible to play for England after the board changed their rules and allowed overseas players to play for the country earlier. 

Archer has taken 19 wickets thus far - a World Cup record by an Englishman - and will be the key player in the clash against the Kiwis. 

He had played a crucial role in England's win over the Aussies in the semis, trapping Aaron Finch with his first ball of the game before a well-disguised slower delivery got the better of Glenn Maxwell. 

England have never won a World Cup and last entered the finals in 1992, but Archer is confident that he will not remain overwhelmed when he takes the field at Lord's. 

"I don't think it's really sunk in yet. But the calmer you are the better you are in these situations," he said.

"I just think I've always been like this. I try not to get nervous because then you end up doing stuff that you are not really supposed to do. Butterflies? Not really. Even when we were at breakfast before Australia. I may be wrong but I don't think anyone looked nervous. Everyone just looked focused by the time we got into the ground. It's those little things that make you feel like the guys are really ready," said Archer.
