World Cup 2023: England’s Star Pacer Jofra Archer on track to return from injury for ICC Cricket World Cup 2023: England’s Jofra Archer is on track to return from injury for the ODI World Cup in India; the tournament will be held in India from October 5 to November 14.
Jofra Archer has been struggling with many injuries in the last few years, but Farbrace, who coaches Archer at County side Sussex, said that Archer is recovering well and likely to be fit for the tournament in India.
Archer was a key player in England’s victory in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, and his return would be a major boost for the team. However, McCullum believes that international boards must be prepared for the possibility that players will choose to play in lucrative T20 leagues instead of for their country.
Archer has performed exceptionally for England in World Cup 2019, taking 20 wickets in the tournament. He has not played a Test for England since 2021, but Farbrace believes he is good enough to play for his country again in all three formats.
The World Cup 2023 will be Archer’s third appearance in the ICC tournament. He was also part of the England squads in 2015 and 2019.
England’s Coach on Jofra Archer’s Comeback:
McCullum is currently the head coach of England’s Test team, and he believes that the cricketing landscape is rapidly changing. He said that the time is not far away when several players will opt for lucrative T20 leagues instead of central contracts.
“We Know that players would turn down such a huge amounts of money to play T20 league because they should be playing international cricket for Their Country,” McCullum said.
“In the end, the game is going in a different direction,” McCullum said. “International cricket has changed a lot in the last few years.”
McCullum’s comments come amid reports suggesting that IPL teams are in talks with many English cricketers, including Archer, to sign annual deals.
