Rajasthan Royals dropped Jofra Archer from their squad during IPL 2022 retentions. The England pacer did not participate in IPL 2021 due to an elbow injury. The right-arm pacer got injured earlier in March and did not play any game since then. Archer will only return next year as he is undergoing recovery.
Jofra Archer made his debut in IPL 2018, when he picked 15 wickets for Rajasthan Royals. In the 2019 and 2020 seasons too, the English pacer gave a brilliant show, picking 11 and 20 wickets respectively. As Jofra Archer has been released by Rajasthan Royals, other franchises will be interested to grab the 26-year-old pacer in their squad. Here we talk about 3 teams that can target Archer in IPL 2022 auction.

Royal Challengers Bangalore had bought pacer Kyle Jamieson for a massive price during IPL 2021 auction. But the franchise released him from the squad ahead of IPL 2022.
