"You never want to see anyone get hurt", Root said.

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.

'Ironically, even some of the players who were there when Phil was hit don't wear them, which astonishes me, ' he said.

"The crowd could learn a thing or two from Steve Smith and I look forward to him answering his hecklers with bat and ball in hand to bring home the Ashes".

"I had some tests done and upon further assessments it was deemed to be mild concussion".

On Saturday, Steve Smith defied the England bowlers once again but he was stopped from scoring a third consecutive century in the series by debutant Archer, who regularly hit speeds north of 90mph on Day 4.

Meruelo Radio Holdings paid $67,000 for a promotion of its two morning shows that included a simulation of EAS tones. ABC told the FCC that there was a "misunderstanding that the use of the tone was permissible".

"It was a total Ashes foul for the crowd at Lords to boo Steve Smith", wrote Morrison in a Facebook post on Monday.

Kountouris reiterated that Smith's well-being was top priority and commended doctor Saw for withdrawing the former captain on the crucial final day that saw Australia stutter their way to a draw.

"When we get to that point, I think we'll be comfortable to say: "Let's make it a requirement".

Johnson also defended England duo Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer, who received some criticism on social media when a video circulated which appeared to show the players laughing while Smith received treatment. "To see him go down, everyone stopped and everyone's heart skipped a beat", he added.

With Jofra Archer bowling menacingly and Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes also landing in good areas, the hosts will be confident of putting Australia under pressure.

"In that situation they did everything they could as players". They are expected to become compulsory next year. "We keep talking about it and England hadn't tried that tactic of really going after him", he said. He then failed the Cogsport concussion test, which tests motor function, reaction time, attention and memory using computerised playing card games. He might rethink it now after seeing what happened today, ' Langer said on Saturday. (He) was brilliant. Everything he did was according to the protocol, he was very thorough and we know he's very thorough.
