Due to a recurrence of an elbow injury, star English pacer Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the current IPL 2023 and the forthcoming English summer. While Archer has been ruled out of the upcoming Ashes series, England’s managing director of men’s cricket, Rob Key, disclosed that he has not been ruled out of the upcoming ODI World Cup.
After an injury-plagued 2022, Jofra Archer made his long-awaited return to competitive cricket earlier this year. However, his injury woes persisted as he was sidelined with an elbow injury after playing just five times for the Mumbai Indians in the ongoing 16th season of the IPL.
Rob Key, England’s managing director, exhorted people to be patient with the star fast bowler, citing the example of Australian captain Pat Cummins, despite the fact that his injury concerns have frustrated a number of people. Cummins, who will captain the Australian red-ball side in next month’s Ashes, was similarly plagued by injuries in his early career as Archer.
“People such as Pat Cummins missed a great deal of cricket in the beginning of his career. Now that Australia has realized the benefit, he has been able to string together season after season. Jofra deserves some good fortune. According to the Indian Express, Key was quoted as saying, “You can only hope that his luck will change at some point for the better for the poor kid.”
We are going to examine everything we’ve done: Key
It will be difficult for the pacer to regain his fitness, according to the former England cricketer, as he has been plagued by ailments for the past few years. He also stated that the club’s administration will take every measure to ensure the Englishman’s swift recovery, placing his health above all else and preventing him from being rushed into an international assignment.
Fixing this will be a fairly arduous process, but I’m confident we’ll see him again at some point. We will examine everything we’ve done [in terms of rehabilitation and burden]. Everything we’ve done has been based on our belief that it’s best for the participant, not for anyone else. What was the best method for him to have the most successful career possible? That hasn’t worked out. We will examine everything,” he added.
