Archer to begin 'intensive rehabilitation' following elbow surgery

The England pacer recently returned to action after a long layoff in the County Championship game for Sussex against Kent

England pacer Jofra Archer will begin "intensive rehabilitation" after surgery on his troublesome right elbow. The pacer returned to action after a long layoff in the County Championship game for Sussex against Kent but decided to have surgery as the elbow continued to be a matter of concern. "England and Sussex seam bowler Jofra Archer had surgery to address his long-standing elbow issues on Friday (May 21)," the ECB said in a statement.

"Archer will now commence an intensive rehabilitation period working with the ECB and Sussex medical teams. His progress will be reviewed by his consultant in approximately four weeks' time," the statement further added.

Archer pulled out of the India tour mid-way as he had to have surgery on his right hand after a fish tank had fallen on one of his fingers. However, his elbow continued to trouble him even on that tour and he took injections to handle the pain. Consequently, he also pulled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. He won the MVP award in 2020 for picking up 20 wickets for Rajasthan Royals (RR) at an economy rate of 6.55. 

He was ruled out of the two-Test series against New Zealand beginning June 2 and faces a race against time to be fit for the five-match Test series against India, which is scheduled to start from August 4.

England also take on Sri Lanka and Pakistan in a bilateral white-ball series ahead of the Tests against India.
