ARCHER MUST PROVE HIS FITNESS TO FACE KIWIS
JOfRA ARCHER could miss the first Test of England’s series against New Zealand if he fails to prove his fitness next week for Sussex. Archer bowled 29.2 overs in a Second XI game at Hove this week, taking two for 102, but England want to see him in first-class action before deciding whether he is ready for the series, starting at lord’s on June 2. Amid ongoing concerns about his right elbow, Sussex medical and coaching staff will chat with Archer on Monday before deciding his availability for Thursday’s fixture against Kent at Hove.
