India vs England: Jofra Archer Doubtful Starter for T20Is Due to Elbow Issue

In a big blow to England, pacer Jofra Archer might not be able to start for the T20I series against India, after suffering an elbow issue. Archer had missed the fourth Test against India due to the same issue. "Jofra's elbow did flare up a little bit and the medical staff are managing that at the moment. Obviously, we'll monitor his progress. The medical staff are talking about how we deal with this long term," Silverwood said during a virtual press conference.

“He’s trained today (Sunday) with the white-ball squad. We’ll be monitoring his situation but he got through training today,” he added.

Archer had also missed the second Test of the four-match series against India due to the same elbow issue.

When asked about the workload management of Archer, Silverwood replied, “I’ll be guided by the medics. We’ll see where we end up with him. I want Jofra to be fit for all forms of cricket. I want him to have a long, successful Test career. Could we limit the number of overs he bowls? It’s not something I would go out and predict but we’ll find out in the course of time.”

“The important thing for me at the moment is that Jofra gets every resource we can provide to make sure he does have a long and successful Test career. I’m not sure surgery has come up yet. I’ll be guided by the medics on that. I wouldn’t say I’m concerned, no,” he added.

India and England would be locking in the five-match T20I series, beginning Friday. The Virat Kohli-led India qualified for the World Test Championship (WTC) final after winning the Test series against England.
