Ashes: Hit by Archer bouncer, Smith retires hurt

A rocket Jofra Archer bouncer clattered Steve Smith down flat on his face, cutting short a masterclass knock as the ace batsman was forced to retire after lunch on Day 4 of the rain-affected second Ashes Test at Lord's on Saturday.

Smith was batting on 80 from 152 balls when in the 77th over a delivery by Archer hit him on the unprotected part of the neck.

The medics ran into the middle from both sides, as the England players rushed to the former Aussie skipper immediately.
