Ashes 2019: Jofra Archer Reacts To Fan's "Naughty" GIF For Steve Smith

Yuvraj Singh Gives A Hilarious Reply To Shoaib Akhtar’s Tweet On Steve Smith

Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar had questioned English debutant Jofra Archer's sportsmanship after his ferocious bouncer struck Australia batsman Steve Smith during the second Ashes Test which ended in a draw. "Some bowlers you get a tell when they're going to bowl a bouncer or a different ball". I think we can win the series and England will probably say they think they can. Jofra Archer, making his Test debut, had previously struck Smith on his unprotected forearm with another bouncer during a fiery eight-over spell that cost 31 runs.

Losing Smith presents a significant blow for the tourists. "We play on the WACA, we play on the Gabba", Langer said.

Marnus gets checked over by Australia's team doctor.

"It gives you that x-factor", Waugh said. This isn't as macho as before.' We're here to win the Test match, not to see how many bruises we can give, that's not winning Test matches, trust me, you can't get out with a bruise on your arm.

"You can get caught up in the atmosphere, you can get caught up in the contest". We will pick the team we think can win this Test on a wicket we believe will be quite slow.

"I'm sure the bouncer will still be part of every bowler's armoury, if it helps us get batsmen out then we'll use it, otherwise we'll keep sticking to the plan". We're expecting James Anderson to swing the ball, seam the ball and we're going to have to be really tight in our defence. It was unbelievable, skilful bowling and he bowled some fast bouncers in between.

"It's about longevity and how you back up and how you handle different conditions".

"You know you're awake, you know you're alive when you're facing fast bowling".

Robert De Niro Launches Lawsuit Against Ex-Employee for Money Embezzlement
Canal Productions accuses Chase Robinson of "breaching her fiduciary duties" and seeks $6m (£5m) in damages. Robert De Niro's production company is suing a former executive for $3 million.

In reply to Archer's post, a Twitter user put out an another GIF with the caption: "Steve smith getting up this morning". 'When we followed the protocols he was a couple of days away from being fit for selection.

"So far he's come through with flying colours".

But Archer's display, which nearly helped England achieve an unlikely and series-levelling win in a match severely affected by rain, was about much more than economical figures. Aside from the absence of Steve Smith, who is likely to be replaced by Marnus Labuschagne at Headingley as he was when he withdrew with concussion on the fifth morning at Lord's, the coach said their selectors hadn't discussed any other changes to the top six, meaning Cameron Bancroft is set to be retained in an opening partnership with David Warner desperately in need of runs.

There are doubts over Smith's availability for the Leeds Test beginning on Thursday.

There still appears to be no place for the World Cup's leading wicket-taker Starc, who may be forced to wait for what should be the quickest pitch of this Ashes at Old Trafford next month.

"He mentioned that he saw a pitch map of Cummins to him and there were two length balls and the rest were in the short zone".

Mark Robinson has paid the price for a disastrous Ashes by being sacked as England women's coach.

World Cup victor Liam Plunkett has decided against retiring from internationals.
