Jofra Archer could lose the second test against South Africa
CAPE CITY: England paceman Jofra Archer You can miss the second test against South Africa after skipping bowling in Newlands on Wednesday.
Archer, who took six wickets in the first Pretoria test loss, including 5-102 in the second inning, hit the net and participated in fielding exercises, but a pain in his right elbow prevented him from bowling.
A decision on the 24-year-old should be made just before the start of the Test on Friday.
It had been a doubt for the first game after suffering the virus that devastated the camp of England upon arrival in South Africa, but recovered in time to play in the defeat of 107 races.
For the first time on the tour, the entire 19-man squad of England was in practice on Wednesday, including spinner Jack Leech, who has suffered most from the flu virus.
Leech could enter into dispute as a turn option for England in the Newlands Test.
The fingers crossed we have overcome the disease. It was good to have everyone here and train together today, said the wicketkeeper. Jos Buttler on Wednesday.
We start the new year again. We have thrown many things since the beginning of the tour, but we know that it is not an excuse for how we perform (in the first Test).
