The England Cricket Board has announced that Archer will need surgery. The surgery will take place on Monday. However, it is known that the injury did not cause the player to miss out on England’s ODI series in England. The player is currently seeking treatment for a hand injury he sustained before returning to India. Archer may be able to return to the field in full health after the surgery within the time it takes for his knee injury to heal.
Archer’s absence has given the Rajasthan Royals an irreparable loss. Archer was the backbone of the Rajasthan Royals in bowling in previous seasons. Archer took 20 wickets in 14 matches last season. Archer-less matches will be tough for the Sanju-led Royals. This time, the Rajasthan team has a replacement for the unsold Sheldon Cortral Archer.
