MANCHESTER: England pacer Jofra Archer has been excluded from the second Test of the ongoing three-match series against the West Indies starting Thursday at the Old Trafford following a breach of the teams bio-secure protocols.

Archer will now commence five days of isolation and will undergo two COVID-19 tests in this period, which have to test negative before his self-isolation period is lifted, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said in an official statement.

"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 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," he added. IANS
