This year has been full of injuries to pacers of different teams due to which the teams have not been able to perform well.
Some of the big names to have been injury prone this year have been India’s Jasprit Bumrah, Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi, and England’s Jofra Archer.
While Bumrah has become fit after his injury, Shaheen Afridi will take time to recover from his knee injury.
Jofra Archer has been out of international cricket since March this year but now is all set to play for England once again.
However, the team management is not too keen on bringing Archer back just yet.
Skipper Ben Stokes in an interview has said that they don’t want to rush Archer into the scheme of things just yet.
He (Archer) is one of the superstars of the international game. It’s great to see him running back in, and bowling fast. It’s really good to have him back around the group as well.
Adding further, he said,
I think he’s just really excited to be back. He’s obviously had a long time off with injury. As exciting as it is, we’ve got to be careful to not rush him back, as we don’t want to see Jofra Archer on the sidelines for this amount of period again. And that’s the plan. Hopefully, we can have Jofra fit and ready, especially for the Ashes.
Archer is currently not a part of the England Test squad against Pakistan which is a three-match Test series.
The first of the three Tests is going to start on the 1st of December and will end on the 5th of December.
