Archer injury 2

Archer ruled out of New Zealand series with elbow injury

England news

England quick Jofra Archer has been officially ruled out of next month’s two-Test series against New Zealand.

Archer suffered pain in his right elbow during a County Championship match for Sussex against Kent last week, only bowling five overs in the second innings as a result.

The England and Sussex medical teams will now seek guidance, and Archer will see a medical consultant later this week to determine the next course of action on the management of his elbow.

Archer has had persistent trouble with his right elbow since a stress fracture in the joint ended his involvement in a tour of South Africa early last year.

He returned from the injury in mid-2020 but required a cortisone injection when pain resurfaced during the recent tour of India. He later needed surgery on his right middle finger for unrelated reasons and missed the IPL to recover from finger and elbow issues.

England will be hoping the latest injury is not too major a setback, with the quick shaping as a key man at this year's ICC T20 World Cup and the Ashes in the Australian summer.
