Archer had earlier played his last match between India and England on March 20 as the fifth T20 international. A piece of glass was stuck in his right hand, for which he had to undergo an operation.

The pacer was injured in his home in January. It is surprising that Jofra Archer, despite having a piece of glass inside his finger, played two (Test and T20) series in India.

Earlier, it was expected that Jofra Archer will join the Rajasthan team after 4 matches. But after the official statement of the England Cricket Board, the picture was cleared and he was declared unfit to play Indian Premier League 2021.

However, Rajasthan Royals did not suffer much due to their absence and the IPL 2021 was canceled due to coronavirus infection. The team played only 7 matches.
