LONDON (Reuters) - England fast bowler Jofra Archer will not rush his return from elbow surgery in case it affects his primary targets of playing the Twenty20 World Cup in India and the subsequent Ashes series against Australia later this year, the 26-year-old has said.

Archer underwent surgery on his right elbow on Friday and has been ruled out of England's two-test series against New Zealand starting next month.
