However, Archer was suffering from fitness problems and there were speculations among cricket lovers. Mumbai Indians put an end to that speculation on Tuesday. Archer is going back to England for treatment. Notably, Archer and Jordan both played for Cheteshwar Pujara’s Sussex. In that sense, the Rohits broke the Pujara team.
