Jofra Archer to join England Lions training camp in UAE to set up injury comeback
Recognised as one of the deadly pacers of the modern era, Jofra Archer is coming back from his injury and joining the England Lions training camp in UAE in November. The right-arm pacer has been out of action and has yet to feature for England since March 2021.
Moreover, the 27-year-old didn't even play any competitive or franchise cricket as he was also ruled out of the previous edition of the Indian Premier League.
Coming back from his elbow injury, the premium pacer had to suffer a back stress fracture which made him pull out his name from the Indian Premier League and the other tournaments as well.
As of now, England and Wales Cricket will be waiting for his comeback as they want him to participate in the 50-over World Cup which is going to conclude in India in 2023. He also retained his central contract from the England and Wales Cricket Board and is expected to be available for the upcoming year.
He is excited about getting back involved: Mo Bobat
The performance director of ECB, Mo Bobat has shared a lot ahead of Archer's participation in the training camp and ahead of the three-day game against England which is a part of their preparations for the upcoming tour against Pakistan.
"I rang Jofra to talk to him about this training camp. We had a bit of a giggle about the fact that all he's had is difficult injury news recently and he's missed having someone tell him he's been picked for something," Bobat was quoted as same as in ESPNcricinfo.
"He's in a good place mentally and is really excited about getting back involved. He's been bowling at reasonable volumes and intensity. One of the dangers is rushing people back too quickly so what we're trying to do with Jofra is build that really strong base of bowling over a period of time," he added.
