Following a setback in his recovery from an operation on his right elbow, Jofra Archer could potentially miss the remainder of England’s summer.

Due to his injured right elbow, England bowler Jofra Archer has had a rough few months. He has now suffered a setback in his recuperation, which is yet another huge setback for the pacer. In May, Archer had surgery on his right elbow, and he was undergoing extensive rehabilitation with the ECB and Sussex medical staff to guarantee a quick recovery. He also participated in a T20 Blast match, after which he stated that he was still a month away from being totally healthy.

Archer was supposed to play for the Southern Brave in The Hundred to get in shape for the upcoming 5-match Test series against India. However, according to recent rumours in the English media, Archer may potentially miss the remainder of England’s summer due to a setback in his recovery from a right elbow procedure. He has not achieved the needed level of fitness and may have to undergo surgery once more.

Jofra Archer could miss the rest of 2021

Archer is expected to meet with specialists in the next 48 hours to determine the best plan of action for recovering from the setback. Another surgery is a possibility, according to reports, because the problem in Archer’s joint is more serious than expected. As a result, Rajasthan Royals pacer Jofra Archer is expected to miss the IPL 2021 second leg, which begins on September 15. In addition, the bowler may miss the Twenty20 World Cup and the Ashes.

When did Archer first suffer the injury?

During a tour of South Africa in January 2020, Archer was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right elbow. Since then, the Sussex bowler has had occasional injuries and has missed a lot of play due to the nagging issue. The bowler had opted out of the IPL 2021 in order to fully heal from an elbow ailment, but things have not gone according to plan for him. In 2020, Archer was declared the most valuable player in the Indian Premier League.
