Vaughan fears that his injury could end his Test career.
England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) recently revealed that their pacer Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the action for the rest of the year. He will thus miss the ongoing Test series against India at home, T20 World Cup in the UAE and the Ashes in Australia. His elbow injury has worsened despite undergoing surgery earlier in the year and former England cricketer Michael Vaughan has raised concerns over Archer’s Test future.
In his column for The Telegraph, Vaughan feared that Archer’s Test could be over with the elbow injury. However, he also reckoned that the fast bowler is still young and will get the best care and treatment during his time away from the game and hoped that he returns fitter.
“You have to fear for Jofra Archer’s Test career now. Archer is younger and will receive the best care and hopefully he will make a full recovery given time, but it is a worrying development,” Vaughan wrote in his column. He also shared his article on his official Twitter account tagging Jofra Archer in it.
Jofra Archer’s request
Jofra Archer and his relation with social media is well known to everyone. No wonder he came across Vaughan’s tweet. The cricketer will be certainly disappointed with the ongoing injury concerns and for the same reason, he requested the former England skipper to untag from the tweet. Responding to this, Vaughan first denied tagging him, however, deleted both the tweets later.
Here’s the thread of the conversation:
Michael Vaughan is an active commentator and critic in the cricketing arena at the moment and keeps sharing his views on the sport every now and then. He is also following the ongoing Test series between England and India and criticised the home team’s performance with the bat in the first innings of the opening Test match in Nottingham. Ahead of the series, he also predicted that India will win this five-match series.
