Jofra Archer has signed a contract extension at Sussex.

The injury-troubled fast bowler is currently training with England and has not been ruled out of the forthcoming World Cup.

He has made no secret of his wish to remain on Sussex’s books in terms of county affiliation.

Sussex head coach Paul Farbrace said: "I am delighted that Jofra has extended his stay at Sussex and we are all really looking forward to seeing him back playing.


"He is a fantastic professional and person to have around the squad when he’s with us."

Archer added: "There is no place I'd rather be, it is a lovely club with even lovelier people.”

Archer joined England’s practice session at the Kia Oval on Tuesday, keeping alive prospects of him travelling to next month’s World Cup as a reserve.

He was not considered fit enough for a place in the provisional 15-man squad.

But, with his recovery tracking in the right direction, it is not out of the question he could be picked as injury cover, joining the squad in India and becoming available if injuries strike during the tournament.

The 28-year-old linked up with the team in south London as they completed preparations for the third one-day international against New Zealand, bowling an extended spell off his long run and following up with a gentler display of left-arm spin.
