Unfortunately, right-arm fast bowler Jofra Archer is not part of the MI playing 11 for today’s SRH vs MI IPL 2023 match. After having made his debut for the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023 against Royal Challengers Bangalore where he finished wicketless, the England pacer has not been available for selection since then due to a shoulder injury. Currently, it is being reported that Archer is being managed by the Mumbai Indians medical team and it is still unclear as to when he will attain complete fitness in order to be available for selection.

“At the moment, Jof is being managed by the medical team, and I am not a part of those conversations. Whenever they have him ready to play, he will be ready to go,” Mumbai Indians’ Tim David said during a press conference.
