LONDON: England pace bowler Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the entire Test series against India, the T20 World Cup and the Ashes this year following recurrence of stress fracture of his right elbow.

Archer was not expected to play the five Test matches against India but an official confirmation hadn't yet arrived.

On Thursday, as England battled to keep themselves relevant in the first Test, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) revealed that the right-arm pacer has been ruled out.

"The England and Wales Cricket Board can confirm that England fast bowler Jofra Archer underwent further scans on his injured right elbow last week. The scans revealed that he has suffered a recurrence of a stress fracture of his right elbow," said ECB in a statement.

"In response to these findings, he has been ruled out for the rest of the year and will miss the current LV= Insurance Test series against India, the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 and the Ashes series in Australia," it added.

Archer had tried to get into competitive cricket following a surgery in May as he played the T20 Blast domestic competition. Agencies
