England team has suffered a significant setback against Australia in the Ashes series. Key fast bowler Jofra Archer, who was injured, has been ruled out of the squad.
England has announced the Test squad for the Ashes, which includes the return of middle-order batsman Jonny Bairstow. Fast bowler Jofra Archer had to withdraw from the squad on Tuesday due to a stress fracture in his right elbow.
The ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) states that Jofra Archer will not be fully fit for several months. Recent scans indicate that he will continue to experience tension in his right elbow due to the fracture.
ECB’s managing director for England men’s cricket, Chris Silverwood, said that this disappointing and concerning period has kept Jofra Archer away from complete recovery. He has not been able to fully recover from the elbow injury, which has led to his exclusion for an extended period. We express our well wishes for his recovery.
