Ashes 2019: Johnson disappointed by Lord's boos for returning Smith


"As part of the Cricket Australia concussion protocol, repeat testing was performed this morning and demonstrated some deterioration, which is consistent with the emergence of the symptoms he was reporting. Which was fine by me, because my eyes were going a bit as it was, so I reckon I would have told them to get away in no uncertain terms anyway", Ponting told

Melinda Farrell and Dan Brettig react to the brutal ball from Jofra Archer that hit Steve Smith in the 2nd Ashes Test at Lord's.

And, while the Australians maintain that Smith's injury on Saturday afternoon was handled correctly, Dr Barry O'Driscoll, the former medical adviser to the International Rugby Board, told Sportsmail he was "shocked" Smith had been allowed to resume his innings after having a concussion medical check in the dressing room.

Steve Smith is out of day five of the second Ashes Test after waking up with dizziness. "Unfortunately that, and how I am feeling, contributed to me being ruled out for the rest of the Test match".

Smith said: 'It is certainly something I need to have a look at and perhaps try in the nets and see if I can find a way to get comfortable with it'.

On Saturday, Steve Smith defied the England bowlers once again but he was stopped from scoring a third consecutive century in the series by debutant Archer, who regularly hit speeds north of 90mph on Day 4.

Pep Guardiola explains altercation with Sergio Aguero following substitution
Bournemouth condemned Aston Villa to a second consecutive defeat with a 2-1 victory, while Brighton drew 1-1 with West Ham. The way the referee took his decision was 100 per cent, then VAR cancelled the goal and it's a bit unlucky for City.

"On that basis Steve has been withdrawn from the match by team doctor Richard Saw".

Johnson, one of the few fast bowlers in recent Test history who was capable of bowling at the exceptional speed that Archer generated on day four of the second Test, also recalled the moment at Sydney in 2008-09, when South Africa's captain Graeme Smith reappeared at No.11 in a bid to save the Test for his team, despite having had his hand broken by Johnson earlier in the match.

"I was trying to get him out, I had a short leg and a leg slip and he was trying to work the ball off his hip, so if one bounces a bit more it should go to short leg, or one of the guys waiting".

Smith will undergo a precautionary scan on his neck today.

"Despite the unfortunate nature of what has happened, the positive is that the concussion protocol, including the availability of the concussion substitute, which has recently been brought in has served its objective", CA said. However, it is not unusual for concussion symptoms to appear 24-48 hours after a head knock.

Langer had spoken about Smith's reluctance to wear a stem guard attachment to his helmet which would have softened the impact and Ponting said that he understands that.
