Manchester: Some Australian fans were evicted from the Old Trafford after they abused England pacer Jofra Archer, according to a report published in the newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald.

The fans were reportedly seated near the boundary line where Archer was fielding. "Jofra, show us your passport" was the primary abuse thrown at the pacer, referring to his Barbados heritage.

 

The fans were asked to leave the ground immediately after neighbours lodged a complaint regarding their abusive behaviour. Archer was reluctant to respond to their behaviour.

With the double century scored by Steve Smith, Australia reached a dominant position in the fourth Test.
