Steve Smith speaks on concussion, chances of playing 3rd Ashes Test

BCSaturday Steve Smith speaks on concussion, chances of playing 3rd Ashes Test

It is just five years since Smith's friend and team-mate Phil Hughes died after being hit by a bouncer in a Sheffield Shield match and, although CA has undoubtedly led the way on head injuries and concussion substitutes, questions will be asked over whether or not Smith should have been allowed to bat again.

Smith's availability for the third Test at Headingley now appears to be in huge doubt, with a short turnaround time of just three days. After being hit by the ball, Smith left the field but made a comeback after clearing the concussion test.However, Smith said he felt "a little bit groggy" on Sunday morning."I started to feel a little bit of a headache coming on last night probably as the adrenaline got out of my system".

He was replaced by Marnus Labuschagne, who became the first player to be named concussion substitute in worldwide cricket. "But I also understand as a player that your helmet is such an individual piece of equipment". However, he cleared a concussion test and returned to the crease before being dismissed for 92. As part of the Cricket Australia concussion protocol, repeat concussion testing of Steve Smith was also performed this morning and demonstrated some deterioration from his testing which is consistent with the emergence of the symptoms he was reporting.

Match referee Ranjan Madugalle has approved Australia's application for Labuschagne to serve as a like-for-like replacement for Smith. With the tests I've done and how I've woken up, it's the right decision.

"I honestly don't know what I was thinking at the time, seeing someone go down, you don't ever want to see anyone carried off on a stretcher, or you don't want to see them missing a day, or a game, especially with what happened a few years ago as well". "Unfortunately that, and how I am feeling, contributed to me being ruled out for the rest of the Test match". I do not care what people say.

The England bowler was seen laughing with Jos Buttler as Smith received attention.

"Australia will now be lodging a substitute for a concussion substitute".

"I was on the radio when it happened, and I found it quite hard to speak at the time because of the way Smith hit the ground and lay there", Johnson said.
