Jofra Archer Left Out After Breaching Biosecurity

English player Jofra Archer will no longer play for the Old Trafford Test after he had breached the implemented biosecure protocols. 

Supposedly, players of England and the West Indies would have directly travelled from Southampton to Manchester in their individual cars. However, English player Jofra Archer breached the biosecurity protocols which caused him to be ruled out of the Old Trafford Test. 

Archer took a different route by taking a 1-hour stopover at his flat in Brighton. Though it was his home that he had visited, it still went against the biosecure protocols that required to have no other routes except for a quick lunch stopover which was en route to Manchester. 

Archer apologized for what he did by saying, ‘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. 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’. 

After what he did, Archer will be required by the ECB to undergo five days of isolation. During the said time frame, he will be tested twice for COVID-19. Should he test negative on both tests, he will then again be required to be a part of the team.
