England fast bowler Jofra Archer has been in the headlines for quite some time now for his bowling performances. Archer impressed the selectors with strong performances in the domestic circuit. Then, he got a call up to represent England at the international level.
He even earned a call up in the World Cup squad in 2019. Archer scalped 38 wickets in 11 Tests, 26 wickets in 15 ODI’s and 5 wickets in 4 T20Is. Such a performance from archer caught the attention of the cricket world.
Jofra Archer still faces racial abuse despite his quality performances on the field. However, Archer does not back off. He likes to give it back to the haters and also exposing them to social media. Archer sports chunky jewelry- neck chains, earrings, and watches.
On Friday (September 11), an Instagram user tried to troll him and hurled abusive and hateful languages towards him. He said to him to stop wearing stolen jewelry.
The English pacer decided to give a strong reply to him. He shared a screenshot of the message and requested his fans and followers to report the content.
The troller came across this post and apologised to him. He said that he was drunk when he sent this message. He even told that he was upset that Australia knelt in front of Archer’s spell in the first ODI against England on September 11.
He wrote, “Would like to send my full apologies with huge regret about some outrageous and ridiculous comments posted last night… up late and drunk watching the cricket, mad at the Aussies collapse..no excuses…disgraceful behaviour…apologies once again…”
However, the user’s apology failed to satisfy Archer. He posted another story on Instagram and said that while drinking he was thinking about what he has been for the whole day.
In the first ODI between England and Australia, Australia posted a total of 294 runs on the board for the loss of 9 wickets, batting first. Both Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh played a splendid inning, scoring 77 and 73 runs respectively. Chasing the total, the England team lost all their wickets on 275 within 50 overs. Eventually, they lost the match 19 runs.
