Shoaib Akhtar Tweet That:
The Bouncers are an integral part of the game, but every time a bowler hits Batsmen on the head and Batsmen falls, courtesy requires the bowler to go and check it out the batsmen.
It wasn’t pleasant of Jofra Archer to walk away while Steve Smith was suffering. I was always the first to run towards the batsmen.
Jofra Archer also provoked outrage on social media, prompting many users to call him for his behavior.
On Saturday, Archer’s hostile bowling attack led to Steve Smith beaten twice, first in the elbow followed by a blow to the neck that caused him to retire hurt.
