A bit disturbing hearing racial insults today: Archer
"A bit disturbing hearing racial insults today whilst battling to help save my team," said Archer on Twitter. "The crowd was been amazing this week except for that one guy. The Barmy Army was good as usual also."
"New Zealand Cricket will be contacting, and apologizing to English fast bowler Jofra Archer, who was racially abused by a spectator as he left the field at the conclusion of the first Test at Bay Oval, Mt Maunganui," it said in a statement.
'NZC has zero tolerance towards abusive or offensive language'
"Although security providers at the venue were unable to locate the perpetrator, NZC will be examining CCTV footage and making further inquiries tomorrow in an endeavour to identify the man responsible," the statement added.
"NZC has zero tolerance towards abusive or offensive language at any of its venues and will refer any developments in the case to police."
