Jofra Archer to join England camp after second negative coronavirus test

Jofra Archer will join up with England’s training camp at the Ageas Bowl on Thursday after his latest COVID-19 test came back negative.

Archer initially stayed away from the get together after he reported a member of his household feeling unwell on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old paceman had been showing no symptoms and had been counted among a full house of 702 negative cases reported by the England and Wales Cricket Board, but was required to undergo an additional test on Wednesday.

A statement from the ECB confirmed: “Jofra Archer has tested negative for COVID-19. He will join the England camp at Ageas Bowl later today and will be free to start training tomorrow with the rest of the group.”
