England fast bowler Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the three-match IT20 series against South Africa starting next month.

Archer returned to the UK on Tuesday evening and will focus his time on getting fit after sustaining soreness to his right elbow, which forced him out of the last three Tests against the Proteas.

The right-arm quick managed one appearance on the red-ball leg of the tour where he took five wickets in the opening Test of the four-match series at Supersport Park, which England won 3-1 this week in Johannesburg.

He will be replaced in the squad by Lancashire seamer Saqib Mahmood, who will remain in South Africa after the three-match ODI series.
