Sussex Cricket is delighted to announce that England international fast-bowler Jofra Archer has signed a contract extension with the Club.

Archer, who has been with Sussex since 2016, took 181 first-class wickets for the Club, before becoming one of England's most exciting pace-bowlers.

He made his Test debut in 2019, but it was his performances in the ICC World Cup that year that would elevate his status in cricket across the globe.

Jofra was the leading wicket-taker for England in the tournament and famously bowled the historic super-over which led to England lifting the trophy against New Zealand for the first time.

Speaking on the extension with the Club, Sussex Head Coach, Paul Farbrace said: "I am delighted that Jofra has extended his stay at Sussex and we are all really looking forward to seeing him back playing.

"He is a fantastic professional and person to have around the squad when he’s with us."

On his decision to stay at Sussex, Jofra said: "There is no place I'd rather be, it is a lovely Club with even lovelier people. GOSBTS."

Jofra is continuing his rehabilitation from a long-term injury and has recently resumed bowling under the supervision of the ECB's medical team, with a view to potentially making the World Cup squad as a reserve this winter.
