Archer bowled only five overs for Sussex in the second innings against Kent.

Jofra Archer has been ruled out of next month's two-match Test series against New Zealand, the England & Wales Cricket Board confirmed on Sunday (May 16). Archer complained of pain in his right elbow and bowled just five overs for Sussex in the second innings against Kent in the recent round of the County Championship.

This is another setback for the 26-year-old quick, who was forced out of action with hand and elbow troubles since the T20I series in India. A surgery to remove a piece of glass from his hand followed by a rehab program to tend to his long standing elbow injury had ruled him out of the IPL and the early stages of the County Championship.

He returned to action for Sussex and after claiming two Kent wickets in the first innings He did not bowl on the final two days of the game.

"The England and Sussex medical teams will now seek guidance, and Archer will see a medical consultant later this week to determine the next course of action on the management of his elbow," said the ECB media release.
