Archer abuse probe

New Zealand Cricket has lodged an official complaint with police over the alleged racial abuse of England fast bowler Jofra Archer by a spectator at the first test at Mount Maunganui last week. Chief executive David White said New Zealand Cricket’s investigation had failed to find the spectator involved, but it would hand over a dossier to authorities to help with a police investigation. During its probe NZC studied CCTV footage and audio, interviewed fans and obtained material on social media which had been made available to police, NZC said in a statement. Archer, who is black, revealed the racial abuse in a tweet posted hours after the first test ended.
