England cricketer Jofra Archer has been the talk of the town after making a sensational Test debut, creating a hostile display after the rain-affected second Test. The Test of Australia Vs England ended in a draw at Lord’s.
Archer took five wickets and repeatedly unsettled Australia with a short-pitched ball. Smith was hit in the neck by the 92mph bouncer on day three but passed an initial concussion test and returned to continue his innings. The injury forced the star batsman to miss the last day with concussions.
After Lord’s Test was over, Archer took to Twitter to post a GIF, and relates himself to an elderly man with a walking stick, struggling to get up from the sofa. A Twitter user replied to that post with another GIF with the caption, “Steve smith getting up this morning”.
The GIF showed a headless man. The right-hand pacer reacted to the post by labeling the post “naughty”. Archer replaced the injured James Anderson in England’s team for the second Ashes Test, took five wickets in the drawn match including 3-32 in Australia’s second innings on Sunday.
Several Australians were hit by Archer including Steve Smith neck injury kept the star batsman off the field on the last day at Lord’s and could rule him out of the third Test in Leeds which is starting on Thursday.
