England’s Ace pacer Jofra Archer believes that he is yet to recover from the injuries he has suffered since March 2021. He recently played five matches for MI Cape Town in the SA20 League, where he picked up eight wickets.
“It looked fantastic but on the inside, I’m still a bit stiff and trying to take some of the rust away. I’d probably say I’m about 80%. It’s just some fine-tuning now, just more discipline than actual cricket stuff,” the pacer was quoted by skysports.com.
“I know whenever I’m fully fit, I don’t think there’s much that can stop me, it’s just a matter of when that was going to be. I’m not going to be upset or bitter about how the timing’s been. I think everything happens for a reason and I guess there’s a reason I’m here in South Africa right now.
“There’s no reason to look back. I’ve done my time and I’m here now. That’s the most important thing. To be honest, I had the best time being injured, I had stuff to keep me going – my friends, my family, the gym. I’m not upset at all, I don’t think I wasted any days as well when I was injured. I’m happy,” the England international added.
