Ashley Giles, the ECB director of cricket said that Jofra Archer’s breach of protocols could have been a disaster for the board. He explained the potential impact of the while speaking to British media.

Backdrop

Jofra Archer, the England pacer was dropped from the England side for the ongoing second Test against West Indies in Manchester for breaching the bio-security measures. Reportedly he made an unauthorised visit to his home in Brighton. Although he claimed that he was there for around one hour, his act came as a breach of protects. Hence the team had to drop him from the second match. Currently, the pacer is in isolation in the Manchester hotel room and will not be allowed face-to-face contract for five days.

Archer understanding his mistake apologized for the same through a media statement, “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 sincerely apologize to everyone in the bio-secure bubble.”

ECB keeps faith

England Cricket Board director of cricket spoke to British media and said, “This could have been disaster. The ripple effect from this small act could have cost us tens of millions of pounds.” He added, “The potential knock-on effect I don’t think Jofra could have understood. We made it clear what we expected but maybe he did not quite understand. There has to be consequences to every action and there will be a process we go through. There will be a disciplinary process. That is as much as I want to say on that as it is an employment matter.”

Former cricketer believes that Jofra Archer will learn from mistake and there is no chance of losing faith in the young player over one incident. “That balance with support is equally important in this case,” Giles said. “We have all made mistakes. Jofra will learn from this. We will support him and move on.
