Chennai: England's star fast bowler Jofra Archer will miss the second Test against India, starting here on Saturday, due to an elbow injury sustained during the series opener.

"Jofra Archer will miss the second Test against India in Chennai starting on Saturday after having an injection in his right elbow," the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said in a statement on Thursday.

The Barbados-born fast bowler, in any case, was supposed to be rested during the course of the series as a part of England's rotation policy.

The ECB also clarified that the fast bowler had not sustained the injury due to any previous niggle.

The visitors lead the four-match series 1-0 after their 227-run win in the first Test.
