England’s Jofra Archer has been dropped out of the squad ahead of the second Test against West Indies as the pacer has breached the bio-secure protocols.
As a consequence, the player will be isolated for five days and will be tested twice for COVID-19. If he will be tested negative, he can rejoin the team after five days after the self-isolation period will be lifted.

However, the player has sought apologies and is ashamed of what he has done. He feels like it never would have been committed as it has put the whole management and buddies in danger.
“I am extremely sorry for what I have done,” said Archer.
“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 apologize to everyone in the bio-secure bubble,” he added.
Archer feels sorrow over not being a part of the second test and he feels like letting down both of the teams; West Indies and England.
“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,” he maintained.
It must be noted that the West Indies have defeated England in the first test. Ben Stokes, who led the team in place of Joe Root, could not take his team towards victory. However, West Indies need to beat England in one more Test to win the series. As a consequence, the players would be granted with massive rewards.
It is to be noted that England vs West Indies’ second test will be played at Old Trafford on 16th July which has been paused and the time is to be decided.
