Jofra Archer dropped from England squad for second West Indies Test after rules breach

Jofra Archer has been axed from the England side for the second Test with West Indies and placed in isolation for breaking bio-secure protocols.

The 25-year-old star fast bowler has crashed to earth with a bump after leaving the bio-secure bubble to go to his home in Hove ahead of the Test at Old Trafford and putting the entire summer at risk.

“I am extremely sorry for what I have done,” said Archer in a statement.

“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.

“It deeply pains me to be missing the Test match, especially with the series poised. I feel like I have let both teams down, and again I am sorry.”

While the cricket team will be disappointed to be without their quickest and most potent bowler, Archer's actions could have had wider ramifications than simply success or failure in a Test match.

Bosses at the ECB will be fuming that a player could have been so naive as to put their multi-million pound deal with Sky at risk.

While it may seem like the bio-secure bubble and games behind closed doors have been organised as simply as a child's birthday party, it has been an incredible feat to get the games on and keep the cash rolling in from Sky.

As chief executive Tom Harrison told a Parliamentary Select Committee earlier this summer: “Without international cricket we are facing a £280million hole in the game's finances. We need these matches to keep the lights on.”

Archer left the bubble by visiting his home in hove on his way to Manchester on Monday, but the ECB have reassured the opposition and the government through their own track and trace system that his movements represent a low risk and a five-day period in isolation will suffice.

Archer must now be tested twice over the next five days to ensure that he has remained negative for Covid-19 before he will be allowed to leave his room at the hotel at Old Trafford and rejoin the playing squad.

His place in the team, which was buoyed by his outstanding bowling on the fifth day of the first Test, is set to be taken by left arm seamer Sam Curran who had been added to the squad just hours earlier.
