Silverwood: Archer’s decision to miss ODIs and part of IPL ‘mutual’, ‘sensible’


“He wants to be at the World Cup and he wants to be at the Ashes,” head coach says

Jofra Archer‘s decision to miss the early stages of the IPL season in order to ensure his long-term fitness ahead of the T20 World Cup and the Ashes is a “very satisfying” one, in the eyes of England’s head coach Chris Silverwood.

England confirmed on Sunday that Archer would miss the ODI series in India and at least the start of the IPL in order to receive specialist medical attention, after the condition of his elbow injury worsened over the course of the T20I series.

Speaking after England’s journey from Ahmedabad to Pune on Sunday, Silverwood stressed that the decision for Archer to miss the start of the IPL had been a mutual one.
