England and Sussex seamer Jofra Archer has been ruled out for the season after being diagnosed with a stress fracture to the lower back.

Archer has not played for England since their T20I series in India last March and has undergone three bouts of surgery in the last 14 months with one on his hand to remove a shard of glass, and two on his elbow.

The 27-year-old trained with England in Barbados as part of his rehabilitation earlier this year and he had planned on making his comeback for Sussex in their opening Blast fixture against Glamorgan on May 26.
