'Holding doesn't know': Archer fires back and insists England supports BLM

Jofra Archer has fired back at Michael Holding and insists England have not forgotten the spirit of the Black Lives Matter movement. Saying that Holding had not done his research when criticising the team’s decision to stop taking a knee. The Sky pundit accused England’s players of abandoning the gesture ‘as soon as West Indies went home’. Archer also spoke about the racist abuse he has recieved during his 18-month international career, on social media and in person. ‘I think I’m strong enough to deal with it but what happens when they start targeting someone who isn’t as mentally strong and it starts affecting them? We’ve got to try and stamp it out as much as possible now’

    taking the knee gesture is cringeworthy in a non contact body sport like cricket , honestly no racism should be the better bet
