England fast bowler Jofra Archer will undergo surgery to treat his troublesome right elbow on Friday, May 21. England Cricket Board on Thursday said the pacer's sore elbow was reviewed and surgery was recommended by a medical consultant.

Jofra Archer was ruled out of the 2-Test series against New Zealand in June due to pain in his right elbow. Archer has been managing his elbow issue for quite some time. The England pacer played the Test series against India in February with the niggle in his elbow.

It remains to be seen if Archer will be available for the much-anticipated 5-Test series against India scheduled to be played in August-September.

This is the second time Archer is undergoing surgery this year as he needed surgery in March to remove a glass fragment from a tendon in his right hand, an injury he sustained in January when an attempt to clean his fish tank went wrong. Archer was ruled out of IPL 2021 which was suspended in May.
