Jofra Archer Abuser Banned From International Venues In New Zealand For Two Years

The incident occured during the final day of the first Test at the Bay Oval and the 28-year-old was initially warned by police for racially abusing the England star.

The man who racially abused England pacer Jofra Archer during their tour of New Zealand has been handed a two-year ban from attending global and domestic matches in the country.

After a lengthy investigation that lasted for almost two months, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has identified the culprit and did not take long to take action. He was also given a verbal warning.

New Zealand Cricket confirmed in a statement that they had contacted the man and written to him, advising of his ban until 2022.

It's a step down from the lifetime ban being proposed a year ago but NZC spokesman Anthony Crummy said if the man breached the conditions of his ban and attended a fixture he would be removed from the venue and could become subject to further police action.

Hudson referred to himself as the "potential combatant" in his own cheeky legal response filed in Shelby County District Court. The court has not made a decision on either party's motions. "I've seen the television show and read the books", said Ostrom.

NZC filed a complaint with the police after failing to "conclusively identify" a spectator who, as Archer explained on social media, had racially abused him during play on the final day of the first Test at the Bay Oval in November.

Following the development, NZC once again issued an apology to Archer and England for the unsavory incident and said that such type of behavior is not at all acceptable.

Mr Crummy said NZC would not be disclosing the identity of the offender, nor information that might lead to his identification. At the identical time, New Zealand Cricket and Captain Ken Williamson apologized for this incident.

Crummy said NZC would continue to treat offensive language and behaviour seriously, with anti-racist messages posted on signs around the grounds, on the big screen and delivered by ground-announcers.

'It's certainly against everything that we as Kiwis are about and I certainly hope that nothing like that ever happens again.
