England fast bowler Jofra Archer, who recently underwent an elbow operation to deal with a long-standing problem, has said that he will not be rushing back to cricket. Archer stated that he wants to focus on being properly fit for the T20 World Cup as well as the Ashes towards the end of the year. The 26-year-old had his elbow surgery on May 21 and will now undergo a rehabilitation program to try and regain full fitness. Archer made a failed attempt at a comeback representing the Sussex 2nd XI and then the main Sussex team. His fitness though was found out.
Rajasthan Royals' director of cricket Kumar Sangakkara has informed that all-rounder Chris Morris, purchased by franchise for a record Rs 16.25 crore at the IPL auction, will have a very specific role of supporting Jofra Archer. Morris, on Friday, became the most expensive buy in the history of the IPL, beating Yuvraj Singh’s record of Rs 16 crore.
England fast bowler Jofra Archer has revealed that he has misplaced his World Cup 2019 after shifting to a new flat. Archer bowled the Super Over against New Zealand at Lord’s, which won England their maiden World Cup title. He has stated that he has gone mad searching for his coveted medal.
Following the conclusion of the World Cup 2019, the ICC has named the team of the tournament. Only two Indians feature in the team -- Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah -- while losing finalist leader Kane Williamson will captain the side. The team features four from World champs England, two from New Zealand, two from Australia and one from Bangladesh.
Jofra Archer may not have been selected as part of England's 2019 World Cup squad but has said that he is not thinking about the same and wants to take it one game at a time against Pakistan in the ongoing series.
