MI Cape Town pick Jofra Archer as wild card for SA T20 League

SA T20 League: MI Cape Town have signed England pacer Jofra Archer as their wild card pick, confirmed by the franchise on Wednesday (November 23). The SA20 League is set to begin in January 2023. The right-arm fast bowler is already a part of the Mumbai Indians franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL). MI Cape Town and Mumbai Indians are owned by the same owners.

The wild card signing for MI Cape Town was ruled out from cricket due to injury in July 2021. On Wednesday (November 23), Archer returned to action for England Lions in a match against England side in Abu Dhabi.

Archer has not played international cricket since March 2021 due to a long-standing elbow issue, which was followed by a stress fracture of the lower back. He returned to action for England Lions in a game against the main England side in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Archer was signed by Mumbai Indians in the last IPL auction for Rs 8 crore despite the franchise knowing that he would not be available. He has been retained for the 2023 season. (With PTI inputs)
