World Cup winner England’s fast bowler Jofra Archer has suffered another major setback. He was hoping to be back in time for this year’s T20 World Cup,

He last played for England in March 2021, having undergone two operations to recover from an old elbow injury. As a result, Archer missed out on both last year’s T20 World Cup and the Ashes both England lost.

He was set to make a comeback for Sussex in the T20I Blast this summer, but was heartbroken for the entire summer last month after suffering a stress fracture of his back. However, he is excited about his recovery and has revealed that he should be bowling back in September.

And with England’s first group game in this year’s T20 World Cup against Afghanistan scheduled for October 22, it means Jofra Archer could be part of the squad provided his recovery goes according to plan. In a column for the Daily Mail, he said: “This is my second stress fracture of my back.

“It’s on the right side of the spine this time, while the back was on the left. I had elbow surgery last December, which is fine.

“Of course, it seems like it’s one thing after another, but I’m not overly disappointed at this stage because I came in with a long spell long ago. If I played a game and then broke, take Would have been very difficult.

Jofra Archer also paid a heartfelt tribute to Ex captain Eoin Morgan after his international retirement, saying: “The summer of 2019 was the biggest of my life and I really appreciated the role he played. I would like to go against the grain and pick me up. I want to thank them for this. Because, before I came, a lot of people were saying that a winning team should not be changed, and that would affect the chemistry in the group.

“He is an amazing person. He is also an amazing cricketer. Someone who has broken a lot of records during a great career.”
