England star pacer Jofra Archer has been excluded from the England side for the second test against West Indies due to breaching bio-security protocols. The pacer was included in the England squad on Wednesday but the ECB on morning released a statement that Jofra Archer had been excluded from squad and will go under self-isolation.
Now Archer will have to enter into 5 days self-isolation and during the time he will be tested twice for COVID-19. After two negative cases he would be permitted to get back in the team. Regarding the matter Archer said I am extremely sorry for what I have done. I have put not only myself, but the whole team and management in danger. I fully accept the consequences of my actions, and I want to sincerely apologise to everyone in the bio-secure bubble.”
However England have not added anyone in the squad hence England would only play with Sam Curran, Ollie Robinson & Chris Woakes as pacers.
