England removed Jofra Archer from their squad for the second test against the West Indies, starting at Old Trafford on Thursday (16 July). The announcement was made just a few hours before the start of the test following the violation by Archer of the biosafe protocols of the team. Archer will now be in isolation for a total of five days during which two COVID-19 tests will be carried out. If tested negative on both occasions, the time of self-isolation will be removed. “I am extremely sorry for what I have done. I fully accept the consequences of my actions” Archer said.
