The mega auction for the IPL 2022 season is set to take place in February 2022. After the Rajasthan Royals released Archer, a top-class bowler, many organisations planned to sign him. Archer, however, will be unable to participate in the auction owing to an injury.
He will also be unable to play for England for some time due to a second elbow injury.
“Fast bowler Jofra Archer had a second operation on his damaged right elbow on Saturday, December 11th in London, according to the England and Wales Cricket Board. The treatment corrects a long-standing stress fracture in his right elbow. The timing of Jofra’s return to cricket will be established later, although he will be unavailable for any of England’s remaining winter series “In a statement, the ECB added.

Following a 2-0 deficit in the ongoing Ashes series, England is counting on Jofra Archer to win all of their remaining games in order to win the series.
Due to an injury that kept him off the field for the majority of 2021, he did not play cricket.
