If you have lost fingernails worrying about results this World Cup, you needn't have. You could have just scrolled through Jofra Archer's Twitter feed from between 2013 and 2016 and you would have known everything about the tournament from there. A few committed accounts on Twitter kicked it off, allow us to take it just that little bit further.

Archer knew Ben Stokes would start the World Cup with an all-round performance.

He knew Andre Russell would amp up the pace, but that it might cost him his fitness.

He guessed that South Africa would struggle, and that there would be news that AB de Villiers had offered to return.

He knew two big talking points would be the bails not coming off and the rain.

Somehow, he even had early insights into David Warner's plans to adopt a more steady approach.

He also wanted to let his captain know well in advance that record-breaking six-hitting against Afghanistan was something he dug.

We're really not sure how he knew Liton Das was going to make a big impact in his first World Cup match all the way back in 2013, when Liton hadn't even made his List A debut.

Of course he knew Carlos Brathwaite was going to make people remember his name again.

But how did he predict the emergence of Shaheen Afridi when the guy was just 15?

Moeen being left out for a few games, only to get a chance, play a really rash shot and then be sacrificed for a seamer again - a surprise to everyone? Not to Archer, who knew this in February 2014.

He probably should have done more to avoid England's loss to Sri Lanka, though, since he knew it was going to happen.

And maybe he could have warned Stokes about that Mitchell Starc yorker

Never mind, he knew Jonny Bairstow was going to make everything all right in the last two games.

Did you not know about Nicholas Pooran?

Things started getting really spooky around the semis, as it emerged Archer had pretty much live tweeted these in his youth. Here's a quick recap of the India-New Zealand game:

And he had the next semi-final all figured out too.

Archer wasn't even born the last time England made the World Cup final, in 1992. He knew they'd make it in 2019, though.

Only fair England have home advantage, right?
