Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer injury updates

England head coach Chris Silverwood provided an update on injuries to Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes

England Men's head coach Chris Silverwood has given a further update on the fitness of both Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer.

Stokes is progressing well from his fractured left index finger and is set to return to action next month for Durham in the Vitality Blast competition. 

Archer is to meet with a medical consultant later this week to determine the seriousness of his right elbow soreness. 

Silverwood said: “Jofra Archer is to see a consultant this week to understand the severity of his right elbow injury. He struggled in Sussex’s Championship fixture last week and he wasn’t able to bowl on the final two days of the match.

"We need to get this resolved once and for all to give him the best chance of being fully fit as we build up to an intense winter, which will include a T20 World Cup and the Ashes. We need him firing in all formats of the game.

“Ben Stokes is making excellent progress following his fractured left index finger sustained last month in the Indian Premier League. If he continues to improve without any impact on his rehabilitation, we could see him return next month for Durham in the Vitality Blast competition. We will assess him again towards the end of this month.
