English pacer Jofra Archer will be undergoing his elbow surgery tomorrow after being examined by a medical consultant. His participation in the five-Test series against India is doubtful.

England Cricket on Thursday shared about his condition and also said about his surgery. England Cricket tweeted, “Jofra has been reviewed by a medical consultant in respect of his right elbow soreness. He will now proceed to surgery tomorrow.”

In the match against Kent, he could only bowl five overs and also couldn’t complete his quota of overs. Also, he has already been ruled out of the Tests against New Zealand due to his injury during the County Championship.

Earlier, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had stated while confirming Archer’s absence from New Zealand Tests, “Archer, who returned to action for Sussex in the LV= Insurance County Championship against Kent this week at Hove, only bowled five overs in Kent’s second innings. He was suffering from pain in his right elbow when bowling and was unable to bowl in the final two days of the match.”

“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,” ECB added.

Archer has missed the recently-suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) along with two Tests against India and games in South Africa at the start of 2020.
