Jofra Archer was rested for England's Test series in Sri Lanka but is back for the India tour.

India vs England: Joffre Archer endorsed England’s rotation policy, saying that “bubble life” is hard and everyone needs some time.

Paceman Jofra Archer said on Tuesday that “body management” would be important for England during a busy year of cricket as he would return after a break for the Test clash in India. England, who have at least 17 Tests, including the Ashes in 2021, will begin the four-match India series in Chennai on Friday. The 25-year-old Archer, along with all-rounder Ben Stokes, was rested for the tour of Sri Lanka, as Joe Root’s England won the two-match Test series 2–0 last month.

“It’s going to be a long year,” Archer told reporters after a training session in Chennai.

“We’re getting some series. I think body management is essential if I want to play everything, almost everything.”

The Barbados-born bowler, along with his teammates including Cochon Silverwood and Jose Butler, praised the England and Wales Cricket Board for its policy of rest during the coronovirus epidemic.

He said, “Whoever’s criticizing it never spent time in the bubble. One golfer left after four days. We’ve been here for almost a year now.”

“Humans are social people at the end of the day and sometimes it gets tough, especially if you don’t have a great game or if you’re not feeling well, but then there is no escape in cricket.”

He said: “I think the ECB has made it really great to give people time, I had six weeks myself.”

“I think Jose (Butler) is done after this game and a little Sam (Karran) is gone. So they are making a priority, everyone gets time, so that we can get back refreshed and let go. To be ready for. “

Archer, who has become an important part of England’s fast attack since making his debut in 2019, said he is ready to be in the team bubble a few months ahead.

Archer said, “I’m not honest because I know I’ll get time so I’m going to follow the job right now.”

“And if it gets too much, there’s no shame in saying that. But I think right now I’m good to go until at least July.”

Archer has taken 38 wickets in 11 Tests and 37 wickets in 24 limited-overs matches for the national team.
