The Fiery English Jofra Archer has always been funnily been considered a prophet following his tweets from years ago, dug up by fans, which seemed to predict certain events correctly in cricket. Following the invasion of Russia in Ukraine, a tweet by Archer in 2014 resurfaced wherein he tweeted “Come on russia!” in 2014, probably predicting the battle.
According to the latest reports, Russia has already destroyed the airbases and air defenses of Ukraine. However, Jofra Archer is expected to have tweeted the above one when Russia invaded Cremia in 2014, Which was an autonomous part of Ukraine but invaded by Russia and by fake referendum they managed to get it into Russia”.
