The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport -

London – Eng­land coach Chris Silverwood has said he may look to limit the num­ber of overs Jofra Archer bowls as he looks for ways of keep­ing his pace bat­tery fit and fresh.

Archer, who is out of ac­tion with a low-grade stress frac­ture in his right el­bow, bowled more overs than any of his Eng­land team-mates in 2019 de­spite only mak­ing his in­ter­na­tional de­but in May.

Test cap­tain Joe Root has de­nied sug­ges­tions Archer has been over­bowled but Silverwood said Eng­land may need to con­sider us­ing the Bar­ba­dian-born quick in short bursts to pre­vent him break­ing down. –
