Jofra Archer faces two weeks of rehabilitation after undergoing successful hand surgery earlier this week, with his fitness set to be reviewed then ahead of his return to training.
The England fast bowler cut his hand cleaning his fish tank ahead of the India tour, an injury that was managed through the Test and white-ball series.
The ECB have announced that he now faces two weeks of rehabilitation and will be reviewed by a consultant before returning to training.
Archer missed part of the India tour with an elbow injury, with Chris Silverwood revealing recently that the 25-year-old was set to miss part of the upcoming IPL to ensure he had the best chance of resolving that problem before the T20 World Cup and Ashes later this year.
The Sussex and England bowler’s elbow, and the effectiveness of a recent injection to it, will be assessed further when he is back bowling.
We don’t need to tell you just how important a player Archer has been across all formats over the past two years and he will surely be central to England’s plans for the T20 World Cup and Ashes later this year.
The thought of Jofra steaming in against the Aussies on a hard pitch down under is an exciting one, hopefully, we’ll be there to watch him do just that live!
