Manchester. The three-match ODI series between Australia and England has started. In the first ODI, the Kangaroos defeated hosts England by 19 runs. The Australian playing XI did not feature Steve Smith in this match. While practicing for the first match, Steve Smith was hit by a ball. Therefore, he could not be a part of the first match. But now good news has come for his fans. Smith’s second concussion report has come in which he has passed. And he has got the green signal to play in the second ODI against England today.
Smith suffered a head injury on a throw from the coaching staff during practice on the eve of the match. For this reason, he was not fed in the first ODI.
To this, all-rounder Mitch Marsh said, ‘I think it was a good decision. There is no need to take non-essential risks for head injuries. He said, ‘This will cause some headache to our selection committee. Whenever Steve Smith returns to the team, it feels fantastic. Let me tell you that during the Ashes Test last year, he had a bouncer from Jofra Archer and he was out of the second innings and his next match.
