IPL 2021, Jofra Archer misses out first round of league for Rajasthan Royals, ECB informs
IPL 2021: Even before the start of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, Rajasthan Royals have suffered a major blow. England fast bowler Joffra Archer will miss the opening matches of the IPL from Rajasthan Royals. The Wales Cricket Board of England has said that Archer is not available for the opening tour of the IPL.
Archer is set to return to England for treatment for a corner injury. He had participated in the five-match T20 series against India at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad. However, the ECB said that the injury made it difficult for him to perform well in the series. So Joffra Archer has been rested from the three-match ODI series.
Archer will return to England
Archer is returning to England. “The board’s medical team will monitor Archer and he will return only after treatment. For this reason, Archer will not be able to play in the opening match of IPL 2021,” the ECB said in a statement.
