Jofra Archer is in line to be declared fit for the first of the five-match T20 series against India on Firday after resuming practice with England, reported Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old all-rounder missed out on the final match of the Test series, which England lost 1-3, in Ahmedabad due to an elbow injury.

The report further added that Archer bowled in the nets on Sunday and Monday while his progress was closely monitored by England's medical team. 

England will head into the series with a full-strength team with Eoin Morgan taking charge as the captian in the limited-formats.

Archer had missed the second Test in Chennai due to the same issue.

"Jofra Archer is not playing in this Test match due to his ongoing right elbow issue. The ECB medical team will provide an update in due course," read an update from the England cricket board.

"Ben Stokes has had an upset stomach, the same issue that has affected other members the touring party. It is not expected to keep him off the field," it said.

Archer returned to play the third Test in which he picked up a wicket. Stokes made a fine 55 on day one of the final Test. Veteran James Anderson is the only frontline pacer in the playing eleven.

The team has conceded a 1-2 lead in the four-match series and is out contention for a place in the World Test Championship final.
