Fans are anxiously awaiting Jofra Archer return to the England team, although he is currently rehabilitating from an elbow injury. The right-arm seamer was not selected for the team’s 2023 World Cup squad since he is currently in the recovery process. Archer will fly to India with the World Cup team as a reserve, where he will continue his recovery, according to a significant update. On Monday, September 18, England National Selector Luke Wright reaffirmed this.
Notably, Archer was instrumental in England’s first-ever ODI World Cup victory in 2019 as he bowled the decisive super over and helped his team save 15 runs. The 28-year-old concluded the tournament as the equal third-highest wicket-taker with 20 wickets from 11 games at an average of 23.05 and a 4.57 economy rate.
“Jofra Archer will fly to India with the team. Although he is a reserve, we still need to take care of him and concentrate on his rehabilitation, according to Wright, who was quoted by SkySports.

Due to recurring injuries, Archer has missed several crucial England series and competitions, including the T20 World Cup in 2021 and 2022 and the Ashes in 2021–22 and 2023. During Match 49 of the IPL 2023 between the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, he last participated in a professional game. His return to the IPL was hampered by injuries, as he was limited to just five games and two wickets over the entire season.
Harry Brook is selected for England’s World Cup team at last.
Young swashbuckler Harry Brook, who was not included in the provisional squad that was revealed a few weeks ago, has now been added to England’s World Cup roster. Jason Roy, who missed the four-match ODI series against New Zealand due to back spasms, was replaced by Brook in the lineup.
Notably, Brook struggled in the ODI series against New Zealand, scoring 25, 2, and 10 runs. But he was chosen for the team because of his incredible strokeplay, which had the power to turn matches around.
Jos Buttler (captain), Moeen Ali, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Mark Wood, and Chris Woakes make up England’s World Cup roster.
