Butcher, who made his Test debut against the West Indies in Barbados on March 13, 1981, weighed in on Archer saying that he totally disagreed with what Archer did.
“We are not dealing with little children. Everyone in the England team knew the rules and Archer is the only one to break it,” said Butcher, who scored 71 runs from his three Test with a highest score of 32 after being dismissed by Colin Croft for 17 and by Viv Richards for two in his debut Test.
“In actual fact I would say he was an idiot. All the England players have GPS tracking devices, so that they know where they are at all times,” he said of Archer who was due to be the only member of the England pace attack from the first-Test defeat, retained for the second.

“He put the rest of the tour at risk, his teammates, West Indies players, officials and everyone else connected with Old Trafford. He was not dropped for this Test, he was not available for selection because of what he did and threw team selection into a panic situation,” continued Butcher who has one fifty in his three ODIs for England.
“For me I would drop him for the 3rd Test. His actions lack discipline and was very unprofessional,” Butcher said of the Sussex speedster.
