Former England cricketer Andrew Strauss has expressed concern about fast bowler Jofra Archer‘s fitness. Strauss believes that if Archer misses the Ashes owing to fitness difficulties, England will suffer a significant loss.

Archer has been dealing with a nagging elbow issue that has previously required surgery. Despite his fitness issues, Archer is one of England’s top bowlers, and his absence in the Ashes will have a significant impact on the team’s performance.

“Jofra Archer would be a significant loss” – Andrew Strauss

Andrew Strauss, a former England captain, has expressed concern about Jofra Archer’s fitness ahead of the 2023 Ashes. Strauss told Sky Sports News that Jofra Archer’s reoccurring elbow problem will be a source of concern for Ben Stokes’ England.

“It has to be a concern, Without knowing the details of it, it’s obviously hard to speculate. That elbow has been troublesome for a long period now, with a number of different injuries with it. It’s easy to be over-cautious, and perhaps that’s what is happening now, but he would be a significant loss if he wasn’t there for the Ashes” Andrew Strauss said.
