Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the upcoming tour against Sri Lanka due to elbow injury. He will also miss out on cash-rich IPL which is scheduled to start from the 29th of March. He picked up an injury during the first test of England - South Africa test series.
Royals management said that they are in contact with ECB to facilitate speedy recovery of Archer but ECB said that he will take about 3 months to recover fully from the fracture. This will mean that he won't be participating in this year's IPL. It will definitely be a huge blow for Rajasthan Royals.
His Royals teammate, Tom Curran said that it is obviously a big blow for the team but at the same time he said that it will be a great opportunity for other players in the team including myself.
