Jofra Archer Primary Focus Is On T20 WC, Ashes


England pacer Jofra Archer has successfully undergone elbow surgery. He will now not rush to make his comeback with a focus on the ICC T20 World Cup and the Ashes later in the year. England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Wednesday confirmed that Archer had undergone surgery. He will start an “intensive rehabilitation” period with the ECB and Sussex medical teams.

Archer has said he is open to returning for the upcoming five-Test series against India. But is prepared to sit out the summer to help England achieve their goals in the T20 World Cup and Ashes.

“One thing I am determined about the post-elbow operation is not to rush my comeback because my primary focus is to be playing for England in the Twenty20 World Cup and Ashes later this year,” Archer wrote in his column for Daily Mail, as reported by ESPNcricinfo.

“Those are my targets. If I come back before then and manage to play in the home Test series against India, then fine, so be it. If I don’t, I am quite prepared to sit out the summer,” said Archer.

“The way I am looking at things is that I would rather miss a few weeks of a year. So that I have a few more years in my career,” Archer added.

“I just want to get this injury sorted once and for all and that’s why I’m not looking that far ahead or at dates for a return to action. Because if I don’t get this right, I won’t play any cricket. Period,” Archer said.

“I am not going to do myself any good by coming back before I’m fully fit. So I will take my time and do what is best for me and my life,” he added.

“Surgery was always the last option. We wanted to exercise every possible strategy before we went down that route,” he added. “It was the last thing on the list. It is not always a fix and in four weeks we will find out how things have gone.

“However, my attitude right now is that the less thought I put into things like that, the better. I just want to throw myself into rehab.
“I remain committed to playing all three formats for England and to winning big series. But it has been quite a while since I bowled completely pain-free.”
