English Pacer Jofra Archer Likely To Return For ICC World Cup 2023

England pacer Jofra Archer is expected to regain fitness in time for the ICC World Cup 2023, according to Sussex coach Paul Farbrace. The 28-year-old has dealt with elbow and back injuries since his debut for England in 2019. While he played several matches earlier this year, he suffered another injury while representing the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League 2023.

Despite his recent injury setbacks, Farbrace expressed confidence in Archer’s recovery and availability for the World Cup. He believes England needs to devise a plan to utilize Archer to achieve the best results effectively. Archer’s ability to consistently bowl at high speeds and generate bounce makes him a key asset for England’s fast bowling attack.

“He’s going well and will be available for the World Cup. I think England needs to work out a plan for him to get the best results.” Farbrace told BBC Radio.

Archer has been out of action since IPL 2023, and his future with the Mumbai Indians is still uncertain. However, the franchise remains optimistic about his potential success and has offered him a full-time contract. If Archer accepts the terms and conditions of the contract, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) would need the IPL franchise’s permission to use him for international matches.

As one of the premier fast bowlers in world cricket, Jofra Archer’s fitness and availability will be crucial for England’s chances in the upcoming ICC World Cup. The team hopes to have him fully fit and ready to impact the tournament significantly.
