New Delhi:The England cricket team has suffered a major setback. His fast bowler Joffra Archer will not be able to play in the Ashes series. Apart from this, he is out of the entire English summer. He has an injury in his right elbow. For this reason he was out of IPL-2023. He was playing for Mumbai Indians in IPL. But he had to be ruled out due to injury in the middle of the season. England and Cricket Board (ECB) has given information about this by issuing a statement.
Archer has not played any Test match since March 2021. He was running out of international cricket for almost two years due to injury. He was battling elbow and back injuries. He made a comeback earlier this year. But once again injury has caught up with him.
We know you’ll be back stronger, Jof ❤️
💬 We wish him the best of luck with his recovery. Im sure we’ll see Jofra back to his best and winning games for England.”

Archer will be under the supervision of these people
This right-arm fast bowler will be under the supervision of the medical staff of England and Sussex team. The ECB has told that both these teams will work on Archer’s injury. ECB Managing Director Rob Key has said that this time is a very troubled time for Archer. He said that he was making good progress but the elbow injury recurred which troubled him.
Archer had returned after leaving the IPL only last week. The ECB said that when Archer was playing, he was having a lot of trouble and was in pain. For this reason, he had returned home. Even in IPL, he had gone to Belgium in the middle for treatment of his elbow injury.
