Jofra Archer will be available to play for the Mumbai Indians from 2023

England bowler Jofra Archer said that he was selected for a large sum in the mega auction only on the basis of his player value. Archer, who has been sidelined with an elbow ailment since mid-last year, has missed a significant amount of international play. Despite not being available for the entire season this year, he entered the IPL 2022 mega auction. The speedster sparked a bidding battle between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals and ultimately ended up in the Mumbai Indians’ hands for INR 8 crores. Archer will join the Mumbai Indians franchise for the upcoming IPL season.

Archer is one of the quickest bowlers in the IPL, and he possesses the ability to have a significant impact with the ball for any franchise. He has 46 wickets at an average of 21.3 in 35 IPL games and a remarkable economy rate of 7.13 despite bowling the difficult overs. He is capable of bowling some great new ball deliveries and getting his yorkers in during the death overs.

With Jasprit Bumrah already in the Mumbai Indians squad, the team will boast one of the most dangerous bowling combinations in the league next year.
