"It is still a way away, I need to take care of my elbow first before I think about what is going to happen," Archer told reporters.

Archer said that on arriving in India he told the England management his arm was "not feeling great".


"I didn't have to say it twice," he said. "They jumped on it and already started making plans. We are all on the same page. So for me in the immediate, I am going to get through the series, and then I will do everything in my power to make sure that I am going to the World Cup and the Ashes."

His captain Eoin Morgan praised Archer's performance in a bowling line-up full of quality pace with Mark Wood and Chris Jordan.

"He is excellent, and I think our bowling unit today again similar to our batting unit has a lot of competition for places," Morgan said after the win.
