Cape Town - England's bowling superstar Jofra Archer received the biggest cheer of the day at Headingley on Friday but it wasn't as a result of a ball he sent down.

After the famously boisterous Headingley crowd lost their watermelon beachball onto the field, it was confiscated by a security guard on the boundary.

But Archer was having none of it.

The lanky speedster ran from his fielding position to grab the ball from the guard before launching it into the crowd who erupted into loud cheers.

While Australia are firmly in the driving seat in the third test, Archer at least gave England supporters something to smile about.
