Jofra Archer's elbow injury has "got worse" and "needs attention", admits England captain Eoin Morgan. The news places the bowler's participation in next month's Indian Premier League in doubt.
- Is Jofra Archer fit to play in the One Day series, and do you still expect to come up against him during the IPL?
EOIN MORGAN: Yeah, not quite sure yet. Well, I think we're going to wait until tonight and tomorrow to see how Jofra's pulled up. He's clearly had a progressive injury that has-- it has become worse and does need attention, so it'll be over to our medical team to make a decision. And then, hopefully, you know, the decision that Jofra comes to will be the best for us in the long term.
I think it's rare when a bowler isn't managing pain. What they do is a tough job. If you ask any of them, are they ever pain-free, it's a pretty rare instance if they say yes. So, you know, most of our bowlers are normally carrying niggles, but certainly Jofra's situation has definitely got worse. So, like I mentioned, it does need attention.
