Mumbai: During the second Ashes Test Steve Smith was hit by a bouncer by Jofra Archer and fell down, following the hit, Smith had to sit out of the third Ashes Test match after failing the concussion test.

Smith’s absence could prove to be a huge factor in the current Ashes series. Nevertheless, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen took a dig at the Australian batsmen after Steve Smith was substituted by concussion substitute Marnus Labuschagne, who also fell down after getting hit by Archer’s bouncer. The former England cricketer shared a video which showed the technique to tackle the short-pitched deliveries from Archer.
