Paine said Australia expected more of the same fiery bowling from Barbados-born fast bowler Archer in the third Test.

Tim Paine is desperate for Smith to play, having noted after the drawn Lord's Test that it "will be tough to stop Smithy walking out".

England have called up Surrey batsman Ollie Pope to be on standby for the third Ashes Test at Headingley if Jason Roy suffers a delayed concussion.

"In my opinion, probably the best cricketer to have ever played the game. very consistent with the bat", said Collingwood.

The right-handed batsman sat out of the training sessions at Leeds on Tuesday and appeared to be a little passive, perhaps still recovering from the hit he took from Archer on Friday.

He has scored 378 runs in three innings at an average of 126 in the series so far including two centuries in the first Test and a half-century in second.

Smith awoke the following day with concussion symptoms, which ruled him out of the remainder of the second Test - and subsequently the third.

Peter Brukner, the former doctor of the Australian team from 2012 to 2017, said he was astonished that some top players still don't wear neck guards.

"Smith, in particular, is a brilliant batsman and whilst of course, I don't want him getting too many runs. he's mesmerising to watch and as genuine sports fans, we should be applauding him, not jeering", Adams added.

Ashes holders Australia lead the five-match series 1-0.
