Archer’s performance is also average
In the current season, Archer has played two matches and his performance in both has been pathetic. Archer has taken one wicket in 2 matches and his economy rate is also 9.37 runs per over. That edge is not visible in Archer’s bowling for which he is known. It is possible that all this seems to be happening due to poor fitness.
