Jofra Archer to miss IPL after hand surgery


Breaking news

England fast bowler Jofra Archer will miss the current Indian Premier League to allow him to focus on his recovery from injury.

The 26-year-old was scheduled to play for Rajasthan Royals in the competition, which runs until 30 May.

He returned to training last week after surgery on a hand injury sustained while cleaning a fish tank.

Taking part in the IPL would have meant Archer spending eight days in quarantine in India.
