Jofra Archer Has Been Ruled Out Due To An Elbow Injury

Jofra Archer will not play for the remaining T20I match series of England against South Africa.

A Barbadian English cricketer who plays internationally for England, Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the last three T20I match series against South Africa due to an elbow injury. 

Archer sustained his elbow injury during England’s opening Test against South Africa last month. He will be replaced by Saqib Mahmood, an English cricketer who became the first bowler of Lancashire to take five wickets during the Royal London One-Day Cup in 2019. 

‘It’s getting better slowly, but it might be another two weeks. I had it in the World Cup last summer and then started to feel it on day four of the first Test (in South Africa). Now we go to Sri Lanka, and it might be a repeat of the slow pitches in New Zealand (England encountered before Christmas). If the elbow isn’t good enough I can’t see them sending me. We’ve got a long summer of cricket coming up, we’ve got a T20 World Cup and the physios will have a plan for my wellbeing’, Archer stated.

The 1st ODI of England against South Africa will officially start on February 4 at Newlands, Capetown, while their 1st T20I match series will begin on February 12 at Buffalo Park, East London. 

As of now, England (-158.73) is on the lead against South Africa (+134). To keep you updated, check out Betwala’s page for more cricket odds.
