Ashes 2019: WATCH – Jofra Archer knocks down Steve Smith with a nasty bouncer

Posted On / /

Jofra Archer’s nasty bouncer knocked down Steve Smith during the first innings of the ongoing second Ashes Test at Lord’s on Saturday.

Smith was batting on 80 from 152 balls when in the 77th over Archer hit him on the unprotected part of the neck. The medical team came into the middle from both sides, as the England players rushed to the former Aussie skipper immediately.

Smith walked off to a standing ovation from the concerned but relieved Lord’s crowd.

The 30-year-old, however, returned to bat in the 85th over and progressed to score 92 off 161 balls before he was trapped lbw by Chris Woakes. Australia was later bundled out at 250 in reply to England’s first-innings total of 258.
