The IPL 2022 mega auction is expected to take place in February 2022. Many franchises had planned to recruit Archer, a top-class bowler after he was released by the Rajasthan Royals. But now, due to an injury, Archer will not be able to be part of the auction.
Due to a second elbow injury, he will also be unable to play for England for some time.
"The England and Wales Cricket Board can confirm that fast bowler Jofra Archer had a second operation on his damaged right elbow on Saturday, December 11th in London. The procedure addresses his right elbow's long-standing stress fracture. A return to cricket will be determined in due course, but Jofra will be unavailable for any of England's remaining winter series, "stated the ECB in a statement.
In 35 IPL games, he took 46 wickets at a 7.13 economy rate. The Rajasthan Royals scooped him up for a hefty Rs 7.2 crore. Due to a finger injury, he missed the full season.
