Jofra Archer’s elbow injury first glowed up in South Africa at beginning of 2020. He was assumed to miss the IPL 2020 also. Despite that, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the tournament was pushed to September and the 25-year-old been able to recover and participate in the entire tournament.

Given that the 50-over structure is not a priority at the moment, it is highly unlikely that England will risk him for the three-match ODI series against India.

“I need to take care of my elbow before I think about what is going to happen. For me, in the immediate, I want to get through this [Twenty20] series and then I will do everything in my power to make sure I’m going to the World Cup and the Ashes,” Jofra Archer said a few days ago when asked about his injury.
