England fast bowler Jofra Archer underwent further scans on his injured right elbow today in the UK. The scans confirmed that Archer has suffered a low-grade stress fracture of the right elbow.

As a result of the injury, he has been ruled out of England’s Test tour of Sri Lanka and the Indian Premier League 2020 season.

He will now commence an injury rehabilitation programme with the ECB medical team with a view to be ready for the international summer campaign starting in June against West Indies in a three-match Test series.

Archer last played for England in the first Test against South Africa at Centurion in which he picked up a five-wicket haul in the second innings in 107-run defeat. He missed the remainder of the series and consequently has not been picked in the ODI team as well due to injury. Archer, who made his international debut in May last year, within a matter of few months, also played in the World Cup, where he finished as England's leading wicket-taker with 20 scalps, which ended his side's misery at the mega event.

In 2019, Archer Archer bowled 2,405 deliveries (400.5 overs) across formats in international cricket, which is the most by any England bowler. Only five other bowlers have bowled more than him.
