Jordan Cox to Miss Out Next Match Due to Protocol Breach

Kent batsman Jordan Cox will not play on their upcoming Middlesex fixture after being found guilty of breaching the COVID-19 protocols. 

Jordan Cox has been dropped out from Kent’s next match against Middlesex for the Bob Willis Trophy match. Ever since cricket has resumed, cricket boards have made sure that all players should follow the COVID-19 safety protocols to ensure the safety of all. 

However, Cox was found to be guilty of breaching these protocols after he posed for some pictures with the fans after they won against Sussex. With that, it is undeniable that the 19-year-old has indeed breached the bio-secure bubble and the social distancing guidelines which had been imposed. 

As per Cox, ‘I fully understand the consequences, and I want to apologise to everyone. I'm gutted to be missing the next match and feel like I have let the team down. I am very sorry that this has happened’.

In response, Kent’s director of cricket Paul Downton said, ‘It is unfortunate for Jordan that on the back of an outstanding performance, our team medical protocols were breached. We take these protocols very seriously and Jordan has no choice but to go into self-isolation’. 

Despite Cox being an outstanding player, he will still have to produce negative COVID-19 test results before being allowed to play for the team again. To learn more about Kent County Cricket Club, visit Betwala.
