England vs Australia: Follow all the action from Lord's

Australia's Steve Smith during nets

Smith was defying the England bowling attack on the fourth day of the test match before he was left with no choice but to the leave the field after Jofra Archer's deadly bouncer nearly knocked him out unconscious.

Australia, bidding for their first Ashes campaign triumph on English soil in 18 years, lead the five-match series 1-0 after a 251-run win at Edgbaston last week.

Cricket Australia created history when they announced Marnus Labuschagne as the first "concussion substitute" after Steve Smith was ruled out due to a concussion for the rest of the second test match at Lord's.

Australia's Marnus Labuschagne acknowledges the crowd after getting 50 runs not out during play on day five of the 2nd Ashes Test cricket match against England at Lord's Cricket Ground in London on Sunday.

As a result, he is now a major doubt for the third Test that starts in Leeds on Thursday.

Stokes slog-swept off-spinner Nathan Lyon for two sixes in as many deliveries on the way to a 160-ball century, his seventh in Tests and second against Australia.

Jonny Bairstow came in and, alongside Stokes, took the attack to the Australian bowlers in an entertaining and unbroken stand of 97.

Australia were 19-2 when Usman Khawaja was caught behind off a fine Archer ball just outside off stump for two.

The first over after tea saw struggling opener Cameron Bancroft (16) plumb lbw to a ball that kept low from Leach, with Australia in trouble at 47-3.

As Archer exhausted slightly before being taken out of the attack and time running out for England, Labuschagne and Travis Head's partnership began to grow.

Jason Roy dropped Head at second slip off Stokes and the hosts' realistic hopes of winning the match were over.

Archer's second delivery to Labuschagne, was a 91.6 miles per hour bouncer that him flush on the grille.

England were celebrating again a couple of overs later after a stunning one-handed catch from Joe Denly at square leg as Tim Paine (4) fell into the short-ball trap from Archer (3-32), leaving the home side needing four wickets and seven overs to get them.
