Australia’s Smith ruled out of rest of test

Australia batsman Steve Smith has been ruled out of the rest of the second Ashes test against England at Lord’s due to delayed concussion. Smith was struck on the neck by a Jofra Archer bouncer during his innings, forcing him to retire hurt, but he returned to the crease 40 minutes later and added 12 runs before being dismissed for 92. Smith, who made 144 and 142 in Australia’s first-test victory, did not field at the start of England’s second innings on Saturday and will play no part in the last day of the match. England resumed on 96 for four after a rain delay of over an hour, leading by 104 runs.
