I just want to focus on feeling good: Jofra Archer

The speedster played only a solitary game for Mumbai Indians and since then has been nursing a niggle

Jofra Archer made his debut for Mumbai Indians in their opening clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore after a long time away from the field due to an elbow injury. 

The speedster bowled four overs and conceded 33 runs in Mumbai's defeat and, since then, has been out of action due to a niggle. 

"Obviously, the last two weeks aren't exactly what you would hope for after being so fully active. But it's what you expect when you've been off for a long time: the body's not going to be 100 percent straight away," he said in a conversation with ESPN Cricinfo. 

"There are going to be moments where it feels a lot more serious than it actually is. I don't know which game will be the next, but I'm just trying to put myself in the best position possible, " he added. 

The England seamer stated that the goal is to still bowl fast, and the focus right now is to feel good every minute as he plans to stage a comeback in the tournament. 

"To be honest, I still want to bowl fast and stuff - but when you feel good, you bowl good. I just want to focus on feeling good at the minute. I've been really well looked after here, and you feel at home. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms."

"It's a great franchise, and hopefully, I get the opportunity to win a few games for them. We've won more games than we've lost, which is miles better than what we did last year, so everything is going well, and the mood in the camp is good," he concluded. 

Mumbai Indians will lock horns against Punjab Kings on Saturday, April 22, in an evening encounter at the Wankhede Stadium.
