pace bowler Jofra Archer said racism should be "addressed properly"
after he posted on his Instagram account racist messages he had
Archer, 24, - who in just seven Test matches since making his debut last
year has taken 30 wickets including three five-wicket hauls - said it
beggared belief people could post such hateful things.
"I will never understand how people feel so freely to say these things to another human being," he said.
"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."
Archer is presently recovering from a stress fracture of his right
elbow but is seen as the future point man for England pace bowling with
Stuart Broad set to turn 34 in June.
Aside from his impact at Test level the Barbados-born Sussex star
also held his nerve when he bowled the decisive Super Over that saw
England edge New Zealand in the Cricket World Cup final last year.
He was racially abused at the end of the first Test against New Zealand as he scored a second innings 30 during England's defeat in Mount Maunganui last November.
Archer, who received the abuse as he walked back to the pavilion at the Bay Oval, said on Twitter after the match: "A bit disturbing hearing racial insults today while battling to help save my team.
"The crowd has been amazing this week except for that one guy. The Barmy Army was good as usual also."
New Zealand Cricket announced in January that a 28-year-old man, who admitted the offence, had been banned from attending international and domestic games in New Zealand for two years.
