England's Archer to play for Sussex in T20 Blast against Surrey

England paceman Jofra Archer will play for Sussex in Friday's T20 Blast match against Surrey as he continues his recovery from injury before the Ashes.

The 24-year-old, one of the stars of England's Cricket World Cup triumph, has spent time recuperating in Barbados after suffering a side strain.

Archer has been tipped to make his Test debut against Australia when the Ashes gets under way at Edgbaston next Thursday.

He returned to England to watch Sussex beat Hampshire in the T20 Blast on Wednesday, and has been passed fit to take part in the match against Surrey after medical checks.

Archer claimed 20 wickets at the World Cup and bowled the Super Over in the final against New Zealand on July 14, when England triumphed courtesy of a higher boundary count.

Sussex are third in the South Group after two matches.
