England pacer Jofra Archer has an uncanny ability for tweeting about future incidents. Be it sporting or non-sporting matters, Archer seems to have tweets for all sorts of developments. Soon after Tim Paine stepped down as Australia’s Test skipper following revelations of a ‘sexting’ incident, netizens dug out Archer's tweet which he did back in 2014.

Archer wrote 'Tim!!!!!' and his tweet has since gone viral on the micro-blogging site.

On Friday, Cricket Australia  informed about Paine's decision to leave captaincy "immediately". As soon as the announcement was made, Archer's old tweet resurfaced on social media and has been making rounds on the internet since then. Fans hailed the speedster for his past tweets, which are relevant till today.

Check out how fans reacted to Archer's tweet:

Meanwhile, Paine has been accused of inappropriate conduct by a former Cricket Tasmania employee. According to reports, the wicket-keeper is being investigated over sending an explicit image to a female co-worker along with lewd messages four years ago. Aussie pacer Pat Cummins is likely to take over the captaincy role of the side just three weeks before the first Ashes Test. If he does, Cummins will become Australia's 47th Test captain and the first fast bowler to lead an Australian Test team in 65 years.
