Star England fast bowler Jofra Archer has expressed his disappointment over missing out on the recently-concluded ICC World Test Championship series against the Australian cricket team because of an injury.
Archer was ruled out of the 2021-22 Ashes series because of an injury. In his absence, the England Test cricket team failed to perform well and lost the series by a scoreline of 0-4. They saved the fourth Test just by one wicket, otherwise it would have been a 5-0 drubbing.
Due to his injury issues, Archer has not played in IPL, T20 World Cup and Ashes. In a recent chat with Daily Mail, he expressed his feelings and said:
“Watching the Ashes, I felt like I had let everyone down a little bit, when you see fast bowlers taking 90 per cent of the wickets – but you don’t get injured on purpose.”
Archer added that the last 12 months have taught him that he can plan as much as he wants but there will be something that will always alter his plans. He highlighted how injury was not in his hand and can happen to anyone at any point of time in sport.

In the same interview, Jofra Archer, who was born in West Indies, but plays for England, named the two hardest pills which he had to swallow during his injury time.
“The hardest two pills I’ve had to swallow were not playing in the Twenty20 World Cup and the Ashes but other than that everything has been so good since.”
Jofra Archer has not registered himself for the IPL Auction 2022 because of his injury. It will be interesting to see when the fast bowler returns to action. Fans hope that he plays in T20 World Cup 2022.
