And what bio-security protocol did Archer breach ? 

Not much details provided yet but looks like he must have met some outsider.

Jofra Archer has been dropped from the second Test against West Indies and severely reprimanded after breaching England’s biosecure protocols by stopping off at his flat in Hove during the journey from Southampton to Old Trafford.

 

England’s players travelled up to Manchester on Monday in separate cars following their four-wicket defeat at Hampshire’s Rose Bowl and were told there must be no breaks in the 230-mile journey bar the use of a designated biosecure county ground for lunch and pre-approved petrol stations.

Wood and Anderson are rested, not drooped. Archer went home on monday and this was discovered yesterday. Ideally anyone in contact with Archer since Monday should be isolated but that means end of series

 

I don't think it works like that. 

 

They'll have to test archer and only if he tests positive should the others be kept isolated. Correct me if I'm wrong.

WI line up looks more balanced than India’s 

 

3 fast bowlers, 1 bowling allrounder who can hit test 100’s and a batting allrounder/spinner who picks up 5frs.

 

They would need Atleast 1  world beating batsmen in Lara’s league to hold the batting together  and they will be a serious force.

FTFY 

Nope just Manchester. Glorious sun here in Leeds.

 

Saying that, as much as it's good to have cricket back, it's sad to see it empty. Last time I was there it was full with people at the ashes test
