Jofra Archer to see specialist amid fears he could miss whole international summer


England brace for update this week on fast bowler’s elbow injury

England are braced for an update on Jofra Archer‘s elbow injury, with the fast bowler due to see a specialist later this week amid fears he could miss the whole international summer.

Archer returned home from England’s tour to India ahead of the ODI series in March due to the injury, which deteriorated over the course of the five-match T20I series and forced him to pull out of the IPL. He briefly returned in mid-May after a period of rest and rehabilitation, playing a second XI fixture and a County Championship match, but managed only 18 overs in the latter and had surgery on the advice on a specialist the following week.

He spent two months rehabbing under the supervision of Sussex and England medical staff and bowled nine overs – three in a T20 Blast fixture and six in a 50-over friendly against Oxfordshire – in mid-July, but has not joined up with Southern Brave during the Hundred. He will see a specialist later this week to determine the severity of the problem.
