Cricket News: Will Jofra Archer play for Mumbai Indians against the Delhi Capitals? | Jofra Archer IPL 2023 injury update

English speedster Jofra Archer is likely to be available for Mumbai Indians’ (MI) clash against the Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on Tuesday. The fast bowler missed the game against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday as a precautionary measure as he had picked an elbow niggle prior to the encounter.

However, Australian all-rounder Cameron Green confirmed in the build-up to the game against the Capitals that all players are available for the match and that suggests that Archer could make a comeback into the playing XI as Mumbai seek their opening victory of the campaign.

Jofra Archer injury update for Delhi Capitals match: Niggle before CKS clash

“He (Archer) has picked up a little niggle, and we have a fantastic medical team looking after him. He’s obviously a massive player for us as well, so hopefully, you know they can pass him fit sometime soon,” MI head coach Mark Boucher had spoken about Archer’s condition after the loss against CSK.

Boucher added, “We will always look after the player, so if he’s not ready to put his hand at play, then we’ll look after him as well. But we’re following the medical advice from our team at the moment. So yeah, hopefully, he’s up for selection pretty soon.”

Archer is making a full-throttle comeback to competitive cricket after a fairly long time now. He turned up for MI Cape Town in SA20 earlier this year and was a part of the English contingent that toured Bangladesh last month. However, the bowler was being gradually phased into the thick of things as the England team management plans to keep him fit and raring to go for the Ashes and the One Day International (ODI) World Cup later this year.

Archer conceded 33 runs in four overs and took no wickets in MI’s match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Sunday on April 2.
