More Archer tweets resurface as hero appeared to predict finish

England won the Cricket World Cup with victory over New Zealand, and once again old tweets from a seemingly clairvoyant Jofra Archer resurfaced.
Archer bowled the super over that helped England to win in a dramatic encounter at Lord's on Sunday.
Four years earlier, in July 2015, Archer tweeted: 'Super over', which some fans jokingly took as a prediction for the tense finish in the final. 
Super over ????????????

16 from 6

In addition, in April 2013 Jofra tweeted: '16 from 6', which, remarkably, was New Zealand's final target. Jimmy Neesham and Martin Guptill felt just short, picking up only 15 from their super over.
Speaking after the clash, Archer said: I'm pretty sure I was going to bowl it. I had to check with Eoin (Morgan). My heart is still racing. It's probably one of the only tournaments I've ever won in my life.' 
A series of old tweets from Archer had already resurfaced as he played a key part in England's victory against Australia in the semi-final on Thursday. 
No England bowler has taken more wickets in a single tournament in history, and he was at the fore again as Australia were skittled for 223.
He took two for 32 to take his haul to 19, but cricket fans were looking elsewhere as they rushed to hail the fast bowler.
In fact a series of tweets sent by Archer over the years appeared to predict England's dominant display in the field after losing the toss. 
'(Aaron) Finch goes' read one of the first to resurface, after Archer dismissed the Aussie captain first ball.
Another read 'That's unlucky Finch', with the ball predicted to hit the top of the bails and thus the decision staying with the on-field umpire.
After a bouncer smashed into wicketkeeper Alex Carey's helmet, removing it in the process, a tweet came to light saying: 'That hit he (sic) helmet soo hard'.
While another from 2013 warned: 'All batsmen buy 2 helmets cause went (sic) we meet they will be in use'.
As Steve Smith threatened to take Australia past 250 on his way to 85, a tweet from 2013 emerged saying simply, 'Shot Smith'.
Archer re-entered the attack after the arrival of Glenn Maxwell to the middle, and he proceeded to remove the dangerous big-hitter with a well-disguised knuckle ball.
A tweet of Archer's resurfaced asking: 'Maxwell why?'.
