A fully-fit Jofra is a sight to behold. With that smooth, effortless action, sharp pace and bounce, most batsmen can be caught off-guard. The Royals quick returned to training a few days ago and was hitting his straps straightaway. There was enough indication that the man was nearly there with his fitness.
Archer tweeted with immense joy, announcing that he is completely healed. Earlier this year, on the tour to South Africa, he suffered an injury to his bowling elbow. The bone stress injury forced him to return home and recuperate, keeping him out of England’s tour to Sri Lanka as well. Had the IPL gone ahead on schedule, he would have missed some of the games in the tournament too.
With the Rajasthan Royals tearaway quick recovered, he will now focus on England’s home Tests against West Indies, who are already in the UK in preparation for the tour. Archer, along with Stokes, Buttler and Oshane could make their return to cricket next month.
