Two Australian fans expelled from stadium for abusing Jofra Archer

Two Australian fans were thrown out of Old Trafford on the opening day of the fourth Ashes Test for reportedly hurling abuse at England paceman Jofra Archer.

The pair, seated in the vicinity of the England dressing room, exhibited rowdy behaviour during the day's play as neighbours proceeded to complain about them becoming a nuisance.

The two supporters were eventually evicted from the stadium after shouting "Jofra, show us your passport" at the 24-year-old among other abuses.

Although Archer appeared frustrated at the negative comments, he did not respond to the abuse.

A Lancashire spokesperson confirmed the two fans were not allowed into the Manchester ground following the incident.

Archer, the Barbadian who initially harboured aspirations of playing for the West Indies national team, was England's highest wicket-taker in their World Cup triumph two months ago.

He later starred with a six-wicket haul in England's dramatic win at Headingley.

The first day was interrupted by frequent rain delays as the hosts could bowl just 44 overs with Australia reaching 170-3 at stumps.
