ICC Men's ODI World Cup 2019

Jofra Archer has already announced himself as one of the breakout stars of the World Cup.
It turns out his ability to look into – and tweet - the future, is just as impressive as his bowling.
As Archer took the field against Australia for a place in the World Cup final at Edgbaston, some of his prophecies from years ago began to surface on social media.
And it was... creepy.
Apparently it was a good toss to win and bat first, but Archer liked what he saw in the Edgbaston pitch…
Lovely to see fast bowling friendly pitches 😍— Jofra Archer (@JofraArcher) December 26, 2018
Chris Woakes took the new ball for England, with a nation riding on every ball.

The very next over, with ball in hand, Archer dismissed Aaron Finch with his first delivery. Unlucky for the Australian captain indeed.

When Woakes got the wicket of David Warner, Australia were in all sorts of trouble at 2-10. But Archer had warned us of this already...
2 for 10 :/— Jofra Archer (@JofraArcher) November 24, 2013
Steve Smith steadied the ship for Australia, looking impressive with bat in hand.

In his fourth over, an Archer short ball cannoned into Alex Carey’s helmet…
That hit he helmet soo hard— Jofra Archer (@JofraArcher) March 1, 2015
He hurt? :)— Jofra Archer (@JofraArcher) December 17, 2013
Painful yes, but don’t say Jofra didn’t warn you.
All batsmen buy 2 helmets cause went we meet they will be in use ..— Jofra Archer (@JofraArcher) March 5, 2013
And then when the England quick returned for a second spell, he picked up the valuable wicket of Glenn Maxwell.
Maxwell why?— Jofra Archer (@JofraArcher) September 18, 2014
