Rajasthan Royals have been dealt with a huge body blow with their ace fast bowling spearhead Jofra Archer ruled out of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League due to a stress fracture in his right shoulder. Archer had complained of soreness in his right shoulder after the first Test between South Africa and England at SuperSport Park in Centurion. 

After the scans, it was revealed that he had suffered a low-grade stress fracture in his right shoulder. He was subsequently ruled out of the last three Tests and now it has been revealed that the Barbados fast bowler will be out of action for the next three months and will miss out from the white-ball leg of England’s tour of South Africa, Test series in Sri Lanka and the entire edition of the upcoming Indian Premier League.

Archer underwent further scans on his injured right elbow yesterday in the UK which confirmed a low-grade stress fracture,” the England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement.

The statement added: “He will now commence an injury rehabilitation program with the ECB medical team with a view to being ready for the international summer campaign starting in June against the West Indies in a three-match Test series.”

‘Time-traveller’ Jofra Archer’s tweet gobsmack social media again

Archer has seen his stocks rise to the hilt in the past 12 months. Apart from his searing pace, pinpoint accuracy, brutal bouncer and a plethora of variations, he has also made cult on social media courtesy his Nostradamus tweets of the past. Another such instance happened on Thursday when two of his previous tweets once again resurfaced on Twitter.

One of the tweets was from May 2014 and the other from June 2014 where the fast bowler had mentioned an elbow stress fracture. “All that is an elbow,” Jofra Archer had tweeted in June 2014.

“I pray this ain’t a stress fracture,” he had tweeted back in May 2014.

And, naturally, just as has been the case in the past, ‘Nostradamus’ Archer’s previous tweets cranked Netizens up and they came up with hilarious reactions on the same.
