How Archer's searing spell against Smith changed the Ashes series (Lords)

In a ferocious spell in which he touched 96mph, England debutant Jofra Archer struck Steve Smith on the neck and forced the best batsman in this Ashes series to retire hurt on 80.

It was exciting and it was terrifying, especially when you saw a batsman of the skill and calibre of Steve Smith hit on the neck like he was. It was a horrible blow, one that left him face down on the turf.

Mitchell Johnson examines the impact of Archer's searing bowling spell. He condemns sections of the Lords crowd for boo’ing Smith when he went off hurt.
