‘I thought this guy had retired’ – Twitter reacts after Jofra Archer is back in action

England’s fast bowling sensation, Jofra Archer’s cricketing career has often been blighted by untimely injuries, which is why he had to miss major international assignments for the England cricket team.

The 29-year-old paceman was not part of the team’s project in the recently-concluded eighth edition of the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup 2022 tournament in Australia for obvious reasons.

Had it not been for his injury concerns, he would have been a part of the project and anyways, without him, the Three Lions managed to defy the odds and came through with flying colours in the showpiece event.

England international Jofra Archer returns to action

In what comes as major boost to the England national cricket team, the Barbados-born fast bowler Jofra Archer has returned to action now. Recently, a video clip of him hitting the nets went viral on social media portals.

The right-arm fast bowler was seen hitting the nets session by bowling to one of the batsmen. Fans heaped praise on the paceman for making a rebound to the game after recovering the injury.

Meanwhile, he made his presence count on the pitch by bowling to England’s Test opening batters for the Lions in Abu Dhabi. It seems that he is completely fit and in good shape as he completed five overs wherein he bowled a maiden over but didn’t take a wicket.

He might not have been at his lethal best on his return but let’s remind ourselves that it is just a beginning and he would do much better as the time progresses. He did confront the England’s Test openers.

In fact, he announced his arrival by giving all sorts of problem to the openers. During the very first over of the game, Zak Crawley was struck on the helmet by a lethal beamer, which caused a slight delay for a concussion test.
