Archer, who made his debut for England National Cricket Team in 2019, has been out of action for a very long time due to his elbow problems. He said that he is happy to extend his contract and was hopeful of delivering match-winning performances for the county.

“It’s been a difficult few months not being able to represent Sussex when the plan had been to return to the Sharks team after my elbow injury, so I am really happy to extend my contract and hope to be able to contribute to more Sussex victories in the future,” quoted Archer.
