England pacer Jofra Archer had said he had “gone mad” searching for his World Cup winners’ medal that got misplaced while he moved into a new house which has been “turned upside down” during the coronavirus-forced lockdown.

On Sunday, Jofra’s search for the missing medal bore fruit. He found his medal sitting in one of the rooms of his house. “Randomly searching the guest bedroom and boom,” Archer tweeted.

“I had it (medal) hanging off a portrait someone did for me and sent to me, I had my medal hanging on that,” the 25-year-old fast bowler of Caribbean descent was quoted as saying by BCC Radio.

“I moved flat and the picture is on the new wall but there’s no medal. I turned the house upside down for about a week but I still haven’t managed to find it,” he added.

Archer played a part in England’s maiden World Cup triumph last year.
