The ECB did not state the nature of the violation but media reports said the Barbados-born 25-year old exited the bio-secure bubble to go to his flat in Brighton after the series opener in Southampton

Paceman Jofra Archer's breach of bio-secure protocols could have been a "disaster" and ended up costing the board tens of millions of pounds, England and Wales Cricket Board director of cricket Ashley Giles has said.

England dropped Archer from the second and penultimate Test match against the West Indies following the breach, announcing the decision only hours before the start of the match Thursday.

The ECB did not state the nature of the violation but media reports said the Barbados-born 25-year old exited the bio-secure bubble to go to his flat in Brighton after the series opener in Southampton.

Archer, who has apologized, will commence five days of isolation and have two Covid-19 tests. 

England coach Chris Silverwood said the player would receive plenty of support.
