England limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan reckons that their medical staff will be determining whether Jofra Archer will be having chances of making a comeback in the Indian Premier League (IPL) later this year. Morgan’s remark came as Archer has been ruled out of the ODI series against India due to elbow injury and he will also be missing the initial phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.

Archer will be going back to the UK for further management and investigation of his right elbow injury. Archer’s elbow issue has gone from bad to worse during the five-match T20I series. The ECB medical team will now assess the player and, will be developing Archer’s rehabilitation plan and a return-to-play schedule in due course. As a consequence, Archer will miss the start of this year’s IPL.

When asked about the ODI series against India, Eoin Morgan said: “We have plenty of options, we are spoiled for choice. Playing three ODIs on the same ground against a very strong Indian side, it is a huge opportunity for everyone to go out there and get in the 50-over format.”

He further added, “ODI series win is not a consolation prize, this is a huge opportunity for the guys who have been here on the fringes. When you score the runs or take wickets away from home, there is a huge incentive to try and push your case forward. We have ODI Super League points at stake to qualify for the next World Cup.”
