Steve Smith suffered a concussion after he was struck on the neck by Jofra Archer's delivery. This unfortunate incident during the second Ashes Test made headlines of cricket news. The Australian batsman is knocked on the ground and was taken to receive medical treatments. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]Smith returned on the crease 40 minutes later and received boos from English fans. He continued playing until he was dismissed for 92. In spite of being injured, he was applauded by fans. However, there are some spectators who continued to torment him. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]He was still being mocked because of his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town last year. He received a suspension and was banned from playing all forms of cricket sports, alongside with Cameron Bancroft and David Warner. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]Australia Prime Minister, Scott Morrisson said that it is 'a foul' for English fans to boo Steve Smith at the moment he suffered an injury on the field.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]Morrison wrote on Facebook, 'It was a total Ashes foul for the crowd at Lord’s to boo Steve Smith. His performance on the pitch during his return to test match cricket in the UK demands nothing other than respect.' He pointed out that Smith received his 18-month suspension 'with a real humility'.

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]Former Australian wicketkeeper [URL=""]Ian Healy[/URL] said, 'Lord’s won’t be happy with that either. They don’t like any ‘yobbo’ element of crowd behaviour.' Former captain Mark Taylor described the incident as 'very disappointing'. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial][URL=""]Mitchell Johnson[/URL], a former fast-bowler also spoke about the incident, "'One of the biggest disappointments for me was the crowd. 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."[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]In spite of these incidents, [URL=""]Steve Smith[/URL] will continue to play for the team in order to retain the Ashes urn. He has been producing great outcomes since the first Test. The third [URL=""]Ashes Test[/URL] is scheduled to take place in Headingley from August 22 to 26. [/FONT][/COLOR]
