Jofra Archer would love to play for Sussex again when spectators return.

The England star took 2-29 from 13 overs in LV= Insurance County Championship action against Kent at Hove today.

He bowled in short stints as he eases his way back after elbow and finger injuries.

The action is taking place behind closed doors.

Sussex will welcome supporters for the first time in 20 months when Northants visit in a fortnight’s time.

Archer said: “If I’m fit, I guess I will play in the Test series and I feel alright.

“Ideally, I would ideally have another game next week but we’re off and then we play Northamptonshire.

“I don’t know what the plan is but I’d be happy to play again before the Test series.”

Archer took the first two wickets to fall during an increasingly hostile spell from the Sea End.

Daniel Bell-Drummond and Zac Crawley were caught in the slips and at the wicket respectively.

Archer said: “It’s great to play again with (Sussex) lads who I’ve played with nearly all of my career.

“I bowl to Zak Crawley in the (England) nets and I have done that quite a bit. Obviously, you’re never out in the nets so it was good to get him out here, with umpires.

“My fitness is fine. I thought I bowled okay.

“I played in the second team last week and it’s good to get some confidence and I felt fine.

“I bowled in short spells for protection in case we had a long day but it was overcast, which helped a bit.

“There was a bit of management, but it all worked out.”

Ollie Robinson, who is pushing for a Test debut, took 3-29 as Kent were bowled out for 145 having been put in.

Archer said: “Hopefully Ollie will get his (England) chance this summer.

“We all know what he can do. He’s a talented bowler and his stats prove that.”

Sussex were 51-2 at close of play on day one.
