Jofra Archer Not Checking Steve Smith and Laughing while the champion is down, it’s an ultimate shame to sportsmanship.

After Jofra Archer hit Steve Smith in the head with a fierce bouncer and was flat on the field, the gravely dazed Australians thought of Phil Hughes, this lot had a giggle.
Craig Eldred Tweeted:
I understand Ashes is competitive, but Jofra Archer laughing as Steve Smith lay lying affected was hard to see. It’s hard not to think of Philip Hughes.
Liam Pickering Tweeted:
Despite all Archer’s bravado and short shit (plus the horrendous cover of everything), he couldn’t get Smith out, hit him with a bumper. Well done champion. You turn your back on it and walk back to your bowling brand laughing like a schoolboy and you look at the scoreboard: you didn’t take it out
James Mottershead Tweeted:
He doesn’t mind seeing Archer’s hostility, which is very reminiscent of Johnson’s ashes 13-14. But calculate when you hit someone: 1. you go and control it and 2. He’s classy enough not to laugh.
Neroli Meadows Tweeted:
I know its Cricket Test and it’s brutal, but that was one of the most unpleasant punches you’ll ever see. Flush with the head. Archer laughing doesn’t sit comfortably with me. Am I alone?
