England pacer Jofra Archer has been a subject of widespread criticism in the cricketing fraternity after he breached the bio-secure protocol ahead of the second Test at Old Trafford in Manchester.

According to the English daily The Sun, he visited home to meet his dog en-route Manchester.

As soon as the news broke, ECB dropped Archer from the squad and directed the bowler to undergo mandatory five days of self-isolation.

Archer was duly penalised and got a strict warning from the board over his recklessness.

Several former cricketers criticised Archer for his actions, and one of them was the former Pakistan captain Salman Butt. The left-handed batsman was banned from playing international cricket for five years following his involvement in a match-fixing scandal in 2010.

Speaking on his YouTube Channel, Butt said that Archer should “not have broken the rules” which are being laid amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, a criticism from Butt, considering his scandalous past, was nearly unfathomable for the netizens. The 35-years-old got trolled in a hilarious way by Twitterati.

Check out some of the reactions:

Along with Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were also banned for their involvement in the scandal. But, Amir did make a comeback and even played in the ICC World Cup in 2019.
