Australia's Smith ruled out of rest of test

Australia's Smith ruled out of rest of test

However, Smith did not field in England's second innings, with Australia confirming their former captain would play no further part in the Test - Marnus Labuschagne taking over as a concussion replacement. Smith was in sight of his third successive Ashes hundred when, on 80, he turned his head away from an express delivery from England fast bowler Archer timed at 92.4 miles per hour.

Sky Sports commented on Smith's health this morning during the final day, and the Australian reportedly woke up this morning feeling dizzy and unwell.

Smith reportedly woke up on the morning of day five complaining of a slight headache and dizziness.

Smith was once again frustrating the English bowling attack, hitting yet another half century and then looking comfortable on his way to yet another Test match century.

Ponting said that Smith won't be afraid the next time he comes out, considering that fact that he managed to push his total to 92 on Day 4 and that he is an experienced Test batsman.

"Despite the unfortunate nature of what has happened, the positive is that the concussion protocol, including the availability of the concussion substitute, which has been recently brought in has served its goal", the Australia spokesman said.

"The next Test is scheduled for three days time, and whilst no word has been made yet on his availability for that, the quick turnaround doesn't spell good news for him (Smith)", Holding said.

"Steve's fitness will be assessed on an ongoing basis. Steve will undergo a precautionary scan on his neck on Sunday", the CA statement said.

Player is cleared to compete. He then failed the Cogsport concussion test, which tests motor function, reaction time, attention and memory using computerised playing card games.

The ICC guidelines state that "usually a player will recover in about seven days, but this can vary from individual to individual".

The players' union said "plainly, they are necessary to protect the players who are struck".

"To see the protocols practised at Lords overnight was important and correct". "Not the whole crowd, obviously, but a couple of boos could be heard through the effects mic, and that really disappointed me when he came back out to bat". Crowds have routinely booed Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft throughout the English summer following the ball-tampering scandal of 2018. And Lords, the home of cricket, deserves much better than that also.
