Jofra Archer wants the issue of online racism to be “addressed properly” after highlighting instances of abuse he has received.
England fast bowler Archer posted screenshots of racist messages to his Instagram story on Monday.
He wrote: “I [have] given a lot of thought about reacting to this and I hope that no one else has to deal with stuff like this on a regular basis, it isn’t ever acceptable and should be addressed properly in my opinion.
“I will never understand how people feel so freely to say these things to another human being. It baffles me.”
Archer made a sensational breakthrough in international cricket last year, claiming 55 wickets for England across all formats as he starred in their World Cup triumph and 2-2 Ashes series draw with Australia.
This week is not the first time the 24-year-old has spoken out against racism, after he was abused during England’s Test match against New Zealand in Mount Maunganui last November.
“A bit disturbing hearing racial insults today while battling to help save my team,” Archer wrote on Twitter, having heard the slurs on his way back to the pavilion.
“The crowd has been amazing this week except for that one guy. The Barmy Army was good as usual also.”
New Zealand Cricket announced a two-year ban from attending all cricket matches in the country for a 28-year-old man who admitted the offence.
