Life in bio-bubble taking a toll on Jofra Archer

Sep 15, 2020 12:41 IST

A bio-secure bubble requires a player to follow strict precautions including staying in the same facility and not moving out at all. But staying away from the family for so long is now taking a toll on Jofra Archer. The English fast bowler admitted that it has been mentally challenging as it has become the new norm. England has been in the bio-bubble for 16 weeks now and Archer hasn't had more than 9 days outside of it. After the series vs Australia, Archer will play the IPL and then England take on South Africa post that. The pacer is also a part of the Hobart Hurricanes and may have to play the Big Bash League in December. After 2020, England will tour India for a long series. Responding to that, Archer said that he was not sure how many more bubbles he has got left in him as he hasn't seen his family since February. He added that family time is really important especially when you're in the bubble and you can't see them physically.
