Jofra Archer says final three group stage matches can aid team in knockouts
Jofra Archer believes England's difficult end to their World Cup group stage campaign will aid the team in the knockout stages of the tournament.
The hosts will face Australia at Lord's on Tuesday, live on Sky Sports from 9.30am, followed by a clash with India at Edgbaston before ending their group campaign against New Zealand in Durham.
Despite the daunting task of facing the three teams currently in the top four, Archer feels if England can overcome their opponents it would leave them full of confidence regardless of who they face in the semi-finals.
"I think there's a chance to really see where our game is as well," he told Sky Sports. "They are probably the three hardest games for us. I think it will do us well if we do get through, then we should be okay for pretty much anything.
