Jofra Archer extends Sussex contract for another year

English fast bowler Jofra Archer has signed a one-year contract extension with Sussex.

The 27-year-old’s new contract will keep him with the LV= County Championship Division Two club at least until the end of the 2023 season.

World Cup winner Archer has been sidelined for more than a year with an ongoing elbow problem that required two surgeries and is currently recovering from a lower back stress fracture.

“It’s been a difficult couple of months not being able to represent Sussex when the plan was to return to the Sharks team following my elbow injury so I’m delighted to extend my contact and hope to be able to contribute to more wins at Sussex in the future” , he said on the club’s website.

Archer made his Sussex debut in 2016 and has won 181 wickets in 43 top-flight games during his time at Hove.

He made his Test debut in 2019 and has registered 42 goals in 13 games for England.

Earlier in the year, the Barbados-born player finished England’s leading wicket-taker in his triumphant ODI World Cup campaign, which included bowling the historic super-over in the final against New Zealand at Lord’s.

Sussex head coach Ian Salisbury said: “It’s great news that Jof has signed an extension, he is Sussex through and through and everyone loves to have him here.

“He’s already a legend at this club so having someone his size around is huge.

“Jof has achieved so much in world and international cricket since his debut with us in 2016.

“We love having him around. Even when he’s not playing he’s such a great character and an extremely important member of our squad.” Jofra Archer extends Sussex contract for another year
