Mumbai Indians’ star pacer Jofra Archer has been struggling with soreness in his elbow, causing him to miss four games in the ongoing IPL 2023 season. The English international made his debut for the team in their first match against RCB, where he went wicketless and conceded 33 runs in four overs.
However, Archer has returned to the nets after diligently regaining full fitness. The club management, understandably, is not pushing him back into the starting lineup, and his status for future games is questionable.
Archer confessed that his body requires more time to recuperate after a lengthy injury layoff and that there are times when it feels more severe than it truly is. However, Archer is enjoying his time with Mumbai Indians despite the obstacles, and his teammates have welcomed him with open arms.
The attitude in the Mumbai Indians’ camp is positive, and the squad has won more games than it did in the previous season. As a result, Archer was selected by Mumbai Indians for IPL 2022 for INR 8 crores (about. £780,000), despite the fact that he would be unavailable for that season.
The 27-year-old speedster might return to the lineup for Saturday evening’s home match against Punjab Kings. Fans of the Mumbai Indians will be praying for Archer’s speedy recovery and return to form as the team attempts to defend its IPL championship.
