Concussed Steve Smith ruled out of 3rd Test after Archer hit (Leeds)

Steve Smith will sit out the third Ashes Test after suffering a concussion.

Smith who has scored 2 centuries and a fifty already in the series will be a major omission from the Australian lineup.

Smith was hit in the neck by a 92mph bouncer from Jofra Archer on day four of the second Test, but passed an initial concussion test and returned to continue his innings.

Coach Justin Langer announced the absence after Smith sat out Australia's training session.
