June 25 (Reuters) - Fast bowler Jofra Archer has been cleared to join England's training squad ahead of their three-test series against West Indies after testing negative for COVID-19, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Thursday.

Archer delayed linking up with his team mates as he underwent a precautionary test for the novel coronavirus on Wednesday after a member of his household felt unwell last weekend.

"Archer has tested negative for COVID-19. He will join the England camp at the Ageas Bowl later today and will be free to start training tomorrow with the rest of the group," the ECB said on Twitter.
