Watch: Jofra Archer’s vicious bouncer hits Marnus Labuschagne in the third Ashes test just after hitting him in the last match.
Jofra Archer is at it again. The English express paceman is making it a habit to smash opposition batsmen on the head. After taking out Steve Smith in the last match, he was at it once again as he rattled Marnus Labuschagne on day four of the Lord’s test.
Over to Headingley and Archer has once again knocked Labuschagne in the head with the ball kissing the helmet. Labuschagne tried to duck but the vicious bouncer hit its target leaving the batsmen stunned.
Since making his debut, Jofra Archer has now hit the batsmen on the on the helmet or on the body 20 times – that is the most of any bowler in the world with Pat Cummins (13) next.

Australia are currently sitting comfortably sitting on a lead of 350 at the moment. Jofra Archer knocked the Australians like a storm, taking 6-45 in just his second match. However, England failed to capitalise on the effort and fell like bowling pins to notch just 67 runs!
With still 2 and a half days more to go, it is possible that England can chase the target down. However, they will have to perform out of their skins to equalise the series. If not, they will leave Leeds with no chance of winning the series anymore.
Australia won the first test and the second test was drawn. England were required to win this match to stay in the game. Instead, the Australians now have the upper hand and could seal an unsurmountable lead in the series.
