Archer had tweeted about a lot of incidents in the past which believe it or not have also turned out to be true and he has ended up winning the hearts of all the cricket fans out there. 

Did Jofra Archer foresee Ravi Shastri retaining his position of Team India's head coach?

In case if you are wondering why Jofra Archer who is currently playing for England in the ongoing Ashes series against Australia, then here is what you should know. Ravi Shastri has retained his position of Team India's head coach and it seems that the Barbadian cricketer had predicted this a long time back. In fact, half-a-decade back when he had asked 'Why Ravi?' on social media.

Ravi Shastri was a frontrunner to retain his position

The 57-year-old was always a frontrunner to retain his position of the Indian cricket team's head coach since he is not only the favourite of Kapil Dev but also has the backing of skipper Virat Kohli.

"Well, the CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee headed by Kapil Dev) has not contacted me on this. But all of us share a great camaraderie with Ravi Bhai and would definitely be very happy (to have him around)," Kohli had said prior to his departure for the West Indies, making it clear where he stands on the issue.

Archer the 'Astrologer'

There were many instances in the past where Archer had predicted a lot of things years back and it ended up happening as well. Just recently, the English pacer had posted a tweet in 2014, saying even 370 wasn't safe. What he meant then was that even 370 runs were not a good target. However, Indian fans decided to use the tweet to their advantage and once again called Archer a soothsayer as he had predicted the scraping of Article 370 - and, in fact, on the very same day that Narendra Modi had taken oath as the Prime Minister of India. 

Here's Archer's tweet from five years ago:
