But on day five, Cricket Australia released a statement that Smith had faced delayed concussion and as a result, the batsman was ruled out of day five of the second Test.

Smith, by far Australia's best bastman, is now facing a race against the clock to be passed fit for the third Test at Headingley later this week.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has condemned English crowds for booing Steve Smith after he suffered a blow to the head during the second Ashes cricket Test at Lord's.

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.

Following an independent investigation into the tragedy, Cricket Australia introduced new rules for concussion substitutes in domestic games.

"There's a protocol in place for what happens next".

Australian cricketer Steve Smith is considering using a neck guard, despite feeling "claustrophobic" when the attachment is clipped onto his helmet.

Smith woke up on Sunday's fifth day with a headache and other symptoms, prompting Australia to replace him with Marnus Labuschagne - global cricket's first concussion substitute after the policy was introduced at the start of this series.

The predecessor had a regular and a pro version and it's speculated that the Note 8 would also share the same product line. There are triple or quad cameras arranged vertically and also a considerable camera bump due to the large 64MP sensor.


'I along with a few other players in the team find it a little bit different, uncomfortable to what we're used to, ' Smith said in London.

That Smith was allowed to resume his innings raised eyebrows, but CA's sports medicine manager Alex Kountouris noted about 30 per cent of concussions did not present symptoms immediately.

"You look at the game, only Steve developed a concussion. To see him go down, everyone stopped and everyone's heart skipped a beat", Archer said.

"If you would have said we'd be 1-0 up after two Tests, we would have taken that every day of the week".

Australia were undeniably on the back foot on day five and might well have lost the match had five sessions not been lost in the first three days or 10 overs disappeared to rain on Sunday morning. Even today I was like "I know where I am, I'm good, I'm good, just get off the field" but there's a process now.

England and Australia will next lock horns in the third Test in the ongoing Ashes at Headingley.After winning the first Test, Australia now holds a 1-0 lead in the series.

"With a pretty quick turnaround in between Test matches, I'm hopeful that I can make a recovery and be OK for that."

The second Test match between England and Australia ended up as a draw.
