ENGLAND fast bowler Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the two Tests against New Zealand next month after a recurrence of his elbow problem.
Archer was unable to bowl on Saturday during Sussex’s County Championship match with Kent, and did not bowl in the game’s final day on Sunday either.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said the 26-year-old “was suffering from pain in his right elbow”.
The first Test against New Zealand at Lord’s starts on 2 June. “The England and Sussex medical teams will now seek guidance, and Archer will see a medical consultant later this week to determine the next course of action on the management of his elbow,” added the ECB.
Last month, Archer pulled out of the now postponed Indian Premier League to focus on his recovery.
