Archer should be groomed by the senior bowlers and bowling coach. After all he is only playing his 6 or 7th test. I see him as the X factor. If groomed and managed properly will becoming one of the best test bowler in coming days.

Extremely poor attitude - was laughing away when he hit smith during the ashes, and today hes bowled two beamers (one over turned) and didnt bother apologising for either.

Nasty bloke with a poor attitude for the game

What a load of tripe. I don't know jof and haven't met him, and so I can't comment on his personality. Others Id suggest should follow suit. It's professional sport. Rugby players don't apologise when they poleaxe each other...after the game Smith and archer were seen having a beer and laughing etc, but yeah what a (No Swearing Please) bloke he is.

With that said, I do feel he's gone off the boil a bit. I think he is being mismanaged and having root as an inept captain isn't good enough. However, I do also agree that he should perform better than he is regardless of management.

So you think its fine for him to deliver two beamers as its professional sport?
Second one looked intentional too - Imagine the outcry if rabada did that to broad and broke his arm or was struck

8 games into his test career, Jimmy Anderson who will go on yo take more Test wickets than any seamer in the history of the game had 26 wickets at almost 35s.  6 games in and Arxhwe as 28 wickets at 25s.  For a guy at the start of the journey at this level, it is pretty impressive in my book.  Perhaps if he argued with a few umpires, abused any batsman who played and missed and lost it if a fielder dropped a catch, it would show some people "how much he cares" but I am sure Steve Kirby would still turn his arm over if that is a measure of a bowler

Looked intentional? I Didn't realise we could read minds. Mistakes happen in 40 degree heat. Especially when you're young and trying to bowl quick.

What does the laws say about bowling two consecutive beamers? I know most on here are English supporters and this are happy with the way it was handled, but Archer did himself no favours by appearing to not apologise. Im all for playing cricket hard and being tough, but where is the spirit of cricket in the way he acted?

He should have been called for them and removed from the attack. He should apologise to the batsmen too because they are dangerous and its the spirit of cricket to do that.

Consecutive isn't relevant but two above waist height gets you removed from the attack if they're considered 'dangerous'. First one was definitely both, second I'm not sure was either -  much slower and lower. Daft call going for the knuckleball again after how badly the first went though! Assume the standing umpire overruled square leg, was surprised to be honest but it's not an unreasonable call. Umpires will have a significantly better view on whether it's dangerous or not - could clearly have gone either way with this one.

You correct about consecutive being irrelevant and I could have left it at two beamers, but does the laws make reference to dangerous? This is an honest question as I dont know how the specific law is written. If it does, then surely a slow off-spinner would never get no-balled for above the waist full-tosses, because they cannot be deemed dangerous.

He tried something different, it went wrong, and I dont believe he tried to hurt the batsman, but the rules are there for a reason.

Can be no-balled for height without being removed from the attack. So your hypothetical offie would still be conceding extras.

When he is hyped up so much, this is what happens.
