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:
Exam question, define hypocrisy:
