Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the ongoing Test series against India as well as The Ashes and T20 World Cup at the end of the year due to a long-standing elbow injury.
England fast bowler Jofra Archer will miss both the T20 WC and ashes test series in Australia, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced on Thursday.
The ECB said in a statement that scans last week on the currently sidelined 26-year-old’s right elbow had revealed a recurrence of a stress fracture.
Archer was first diagnosed with a stress fracture in his bowling arm after breaking down on the South Africa tour of 2019-2020.
He has since been treated with cortisone injections in the joint, most recently during another injury-hit tour of India earlier this year.
