Jofra Archer Will Play The 2023 ODI World Cup Or Not? Bowling Coach Pott Gives An Update

The star pacer of England Cricket Team Jofra Archer has faced several injuries which have kept him outside the England Cricket team. He made a comeback during the inaugural SA20 tournament and also participated in England’s ODI series against South Africa. After that Archer featured in some games during the 16th season of the Indian Premier League but then suffered an injury and was ruled out from England’s summer schedule.

Archer is currently undergoing rehabilitation and his exact comeback date remains uncertain. England’s white-ball coach Matthew Mott has emphasised that the England cricket management is not in hurry for Jofra Archer. He said that his unavailability for the upcoming ODI World Cup which is scheduled to commence on October 5 remains uncertain.

“There is a high chance that we will take a risk on a proven performer that has done it on the world stage. We are planning for him to be available. Obviously, a lot of things have to go his way and it will be a tight timeline but with players like that you are going to give them every opportunity to prove their fitness, and so we will keep an open mind,” Mott told Mail Sport.

“It would be a big ask for him (Archer) to play every game, so we would have to target specific ones, but we are big on ball speed for India, we feel like that’s a really important asset for us to have out there and it will be good to see Mark Wood, who had such an impact in the Ashes, do the same with the white ball,” the 49-year-old added.
