Archer out until next summer after fresh injury setback


Jofra Archer will play no part in England’s tours to the Caribbean in January and March after undergoing a second operation on his injured right elbow.

Archer has not played international cricket since March due to a stress fracture in that elbow and underwent surgery in May after an attempted comeback for Sussex.

Further scans revealed he had suffered a recurrence of the injury, with the ECB confirming in August that it would rule him out of the T20 World Cup and the Ashes.
