But no decision has yet been made on whether he will be able to complete his £ 800,000 deal with Rajasthan Royals in this year’s Indian Premier League.

An ECB statement said, “England and Sussex bowler Joffra Archer has been given an all-clear by his hand consultant to resume training as his right hand recovers after his operation on Monday 29 March Used to be.”

‘She will return to light training this week, working closely with men’s medical teams from Sussex and England. Hopefully, he will be able to increase his intensity with his bowling from next week.

‘Another update on his elbow injury will be provided after he returns to bowling to assess the effectiveness of his recent injections. No decision has yet been made as to the reason for Archer’s return to play.

Shortly before leaving for India to prepare for the Test series, Archer got a cut on his arm while cleaning at his house in January.

The ECB’s medical team managed the injury throughout the tour, and this did not affect their availability. In March, a piece of glass was removed during the operation in the middle finger of his right hand. ‘

On Monday, Rajasthan Cricket Director Kumar Sangakkara said that he expected the leading England fast bowler to be able to fly to India after the two-month-long competition, but the Royals say that would be the bigger picture.

Ahead of Rajasthan’s defeat to Punjab Kings in their first match of the new IPL season, Sangakkara said, “We want to give him a chance to participate in this tournament and gain some share in this tournament.”

‘We should be concerned about him as a player because his career is long term and not limited to just one season and IPL.

‘His value to world cricket and England cricket is part of our decision and we in English cricket will be guided by experts who care for Nofra. This is not something we selfishly look at and we take a holistic view of how important Jofra is. ‘
