English cricketer Jofra Archer who has been battling injuries since the ODI World Cup 2019 can be back in the team for the forthcoming ODI World Cup 2023. As Archer’s health status has been a major concern for his fans across the globe, the latest update has brought positive hopes among his followers. Sussex head coach Paul Fabrace has said that Archer is ‘on course’ for the upcoming marquee event and that his recovery is on track.
Fabrace made his appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live, where he shared positive updates about the English pacer. He said, "He is going well. I think he is on course for the World Cup, which is fantastic news. He is going nicely. I think England will need to work out how to get the best out of him over the next few years if he is to go to that next Ashes series.”
Archer has been battling with elbow and back injuries since he made his debut for England in 2019. However, Archer made a short comeback in tours of South Africa and Bangladesh. Archer was also a part of the Mumbai-based franchise in the Indian Premier League 2023, but he played only five games before he flew back home due to injuries.
Archer’s return to the ODI World Cup 2023 would surely be a major boost to the reigning champions. The 28-year-old was the highest wicket-taker in the 2019 World Cup, where he took 20 wickets at an average of 23.05 in 11 games.
