England bowler Jofra Archer has condemned racist abuse on social media, after posting messages he has received.
The 24-year-old, who helped England win the 2019 World Cup, screenshot racist messages from an individual and posted them on his Instagram story on Tuesday evening (NZ time).
"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," he commented below the messages.
"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 has spoken out about racist abuse before.
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, tweeted 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."
In January, NZ Cricket announced 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.
