Ashes All Eyes On Jofra Archer As England Look To Bounce Back vs Australia

Australia's top order batsman Marnus Labuschagne on Sunday became the first like-for-like substitute in the 142-year history of Test cricket after Steve Smith was ruled out of the remainder of the second Ashes Test in Lord's after being diagnosed with concussion caused by a blow to his neck from England seamer Jofra Archer on Day 4 on Saturday.

Smith was hit on day four of the second Ashes Test with the 148.7km/h delivery.

"Helmet manufacturers did the right thing and came out with products (after Hughes' death)".

Australia coach Justin Langer said after Saturday's scare that he can see a time when it becomes mandatory.

Photo The sight of Smith lying on the Lord's turf was a scary one.

"It's certainly an area of concern - concussion, and I want to be 100 per cent fit", Smith was quoted as saying by BBC Sport".

Australia won the first Test by 251 runs in Birmingham, in which Smith scored twin centuries and proved to be the difference between the arch-rivals.

The former doctor of the Australian cricket team has urged batsmen to wear protective neck-guards in the wake of Steve Smith's concussion during the Ashes.

'I feel a little bit claustrophobic when it's on.

"It was then about trying to refocus and make sure you're watching the ball again - I was watching that one pretty closely! I still finished my net, had a few more balls and then walked out and said "righto, now it's time to focus and get your mind".

Research carried out by Cricket Australia shows that delayed concussion - where symptoms don't develop until several hours after the initial blow - occur in approximately 30% of cases.

Smith was allowed to be substituted for the second innings owing to new rules brought in by the International Cricket Council this month to allow replacements for players suffering concussion. "He had some scans and he is starting to improve", Kountouris said.

"You look at the game, only Steve developed a concussion. We haven't seen what the products are at the moment", he said.

"If we pulled out every player who had a head impact, we'd be pulling out 80% of players who don't have a concussion and taking them out of the game".

"I asked him over and over, privately two or three times and in front of the group, the medical team cleared him and he said he was ready to go."

"Our doctor is an expert in his field".

The second Test match between England and Australia ended up as a draw. "There is still a little time to go but we are not far away".

Australian lead the series 1-0.
