LondonThe England cricket team has suffered a major setback. Key player Jofra Archer will be away from cricket action throughout the year. This means that the fast bowler will not take part in the ongoing Test series, T20 World Cup and Ashes series against India. Also, Jofra Archer will not participate in the second phase of IPL 2021. Archer has an elbow injury and it looks like it will take him a long time to recover.
An elbow injury has prevented Jofra Archer from playing cricket regularly since last year. His wound aggravated during the five-match T20 International series against India earlier this year. Due to this injury, he could not take part in the suspended IPL 2021. Archer underwent surgery and made a short return in May.
Where many people expected that Archer would soon be seen in cricket action. Now his return will take more time. This is a major setback for the Three Lions as they have many important tournaments to play this year. It may be recalled that the Barbados-born fast bowler played an important role in making England champions in the 2019 World Cup. Now his absence will weaken England’s bowling attack in global tournaments this year.
Archer’s absence is a blow to England
England will try to win the Ashes series in Australia this year, but Archer’s absence will be a setback for them. For the time being, England are hoping that the fast bowler gets well soon. Jofra Archer has been one of England’s leading players since making his debut in 2019. He bowls at a fast pace and his yorkers and bouncers prove to be fatal for the batsmen. Apart from this, Archer has made useful contributions several times in the lower order.
Jofra Archer has so far taken 42 wickets in 13 Tests, 30 wickets in 17 ODIs and 17 wickets in 14 T20 Internationals. Now it has to be seen which player will be able to fill the place of Jofra Archer.
