England’s fast bowler Jofra Archer, after undergoing finger surgery, returned to training recently and appears to have already started bowling at full speed, as if he had never strayed from the game. In a video tweeted by Sussex County, the Rajasthan Royals’ pacer can be seen bowling forcefully during a net session. Archer, known for his well-directed bumpers, throws an ugly bouncer at the start of the video, leaving the drummer on all fours. Fortunately, little damage was done as the batter was able to get away from the line of the ball just in time. However, in doing this, the batter lost his balance and was seen lying on the court.

“The ECB will confirm the matches he is expected to play in due course.”
Archer suffered a cut to his hand while cleaning his home in January, shortly before flying to India to prepare for the series of tests earlier this year.
Struggling with the injury, Archer played all two tryouts and five T20Is against India last month. However, he was excluded from the three-game ODI series and returned to England for his surgery.
