Changing by adding an extra rule, to say that

"Unless your name is Jofra Archer, in which case the above residency qualification rule doesn't apply, we'll have you anyway please"

Archer is a British citizen. I don't see how he can be made to serve any residency period.

The seven year qualification seems absurdly long to me. Citizenship seems a pretty sensible qualification hurdle. Not sure whether I’d insist on anything else, really.

Hasn't played any FC Cricket for nearly a year anyway. Fairly average in the IPL but obviously sensational in the Big Bash. Will be good to see him back in the CC - when is that, September???

If he's a British citizen the qualification period is surely illegal.

Is this an ICC rule or an ECB rule?

I can see why the ICC would need a rule to create a level playing field as countries have different citizenship requirements.
