Ashes 2019: Shoaib Akhtar Slams Jofra Archer For Walking Away “While Steve Smith Was In Pain”

Ashes 2019: Shoaib Akhtar Slams Jofra Archer For Walking Away While Steve Smith Was In Pain


“Bouncers are a part parcel of the game but whenever a bowler hits a batsman on the head and he falls, courtesy requires that the bowler must go check on him. It was not nice of Archer to just walk away while Smith was in pain. I was always the first one to run to the batsman,” Akhtar said in a tweet.

After 46 minutes, Smith came back to the ground to resume his innings.

He was trapped LBW by Chris Woakes for 92 runs off 161 balls. Australia managed to score 250 in reply to England’s first innings total of 258.

On the final day of the second Ashes Test, Smith was ruled out of game with concussion.

Earlier, Smith made successful comeback to the Test cricket after serving one-year ban for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa last year. 

The former captain scored centuries in successive innings of the first Ashes Test to guide Australia to a 251-run victory against England in Birmingham.
