He was immediately sent for the check-up to Doctor. Luckily nothing went wrong. This incident took place when Labuschagne was doing the net practice.
Steve Smith was thrashed by Jofra Archer bouncer in the Ashes and was retired hurt for the match and immediately sent for the check-up. After doctors approval, he made a comeback in that game.
Labuschagne got the second ball on his head
Labuschagne was sent as a replacement in the second innings of the Lord’s Test. But he was also shocked after being hit by Archer’s delivery but didn’t get hurt and successfully struck a half-century.
Next time he was hurt by furious Mitchell Starc ball on the grille during the practice session. But the doctor cleared of any injury.
An hour after Steve Smith is ruled out of third Test Marnus Labuschagne cops a blow to helmet from Mitchell Starc.
He continued batting after being checked by doctor.
He got one 2nd ball from Archer on Sunday too.
Must have a hard head.
