Fast bowler’s return from IPL and visit to a specialist are sensible but clock is ticking for first Test against Australia in June
There are few more alluring fast bowlers than Jofra Archer. Think back to that breakthrough summer four years ago, Archer tearing through the World Cup and Ashes campaigns like they were crepe paper, hitting stumps, helmets and outside edges at high velocity and sparking talk of a generational talent.
England’s supporters have certainly taken Archer to their hearts since that switch from his native Barbados, greeting every appearance with a reworked version of the Depeche Mode classic Just Can’t Get Enough. In full flight, cruising towards the crease before unwinding from tight into the stumps, that hyperextensive right elbow adding an extra crack of the whip, he causes the world’s best players problems.
