Ind vs Eng: The absence of Jofra Archer has cost the England team a lot.

New Delhi:

England's pacer Jofra Archer is a great example of how injury can take a player from the throne to the floor.

Archer had once emerged as the most dangerous pacer in the world, but the injury caused such havoc that he stayed away from active cricket for a long time.

Although playing after a long break, the runs have become shorter and the pace has also reduced.

But despite this the sharp swing still persists.

Ridiculous hoop.

Currently, he is recovering from his elbow injury, but he may come back soon.

The last time this fast bowler played a T20 match for England was about a year ago.

Even at that time he was not looking completely fit.

If Archer was fully fit, then obviously the English team would have benefited greatly from it.

In fact, as seen in the inswing video, the lack of this swing is hurting the visiting team a lot. 

Are out from IPL 2024

Although Archer is looking fit, he is not going to play in IPL this year.

The reason for this is the management of injuries.

Last year too, Archer had to withdraw from the tournament due to an elbow injury. In fact, during the last three years, he has been out of action most of the time due to injury.

Archer has played only selected matches for England. 

The record has been something like this

Archer, who started his career in 2019, has taken 42 wickets for England in 13 Tests, 42 wickets in 21 ODIs and 18 wickets in 15 T20s.

He played a major role in winning the 2019 World Cup.
