Jofra Archer alleges racial insults while batting

Archer batted for 71 minutes, scoring 30 runs off 50 balls before he was dismissed by New Zealand’s Neil Wagner as his side went on to lose by an innings and 65 runs.

New Zealand Cricket have been approached for comment.

Monday’s allegation follows on from two Australian cricket supporters being thrown out of Manchester’s Old Trafford during the Ashes in September for using “foul and abusive” language towards Archer.

London’s Telegraph reported the pair were standing below the England dressing room during day one of the fourth Ashes test shouting sustained abuse at Archer while he was fielding. Among the insults were “Jofra, show us your passport” and other references to his heritage. Archer was born in Barbados.
