    This.

    There are ways to deal this. In the first test with Warner fielding near the boundary it was subjected to chants of 'his got sandpaper in his pockets' His solution, pull the pockets out of his trousers.

    But asking for the booing or chants to stop, is probably counter productive.

      96-4, leading by 104 with 88 overs left in the game.

      Interesting couple of hours ahead... then it's likely to fizzle out.

      From the TMS Website:

      There has been a lot of discussion about the booing of Steve Smith yesterday. Plenty of people at the ground said they didn't hear anything but you could hear boos on TV and radio coverage when he walked off after retiring hurt and when he returned.

      The Australian Cricketers Association have given a strongly worded statement.

      "Cricket deserves much better than that," the statement reads. "And Lords, the home of cricket, deserves much better than that also.

      "What we witnessed was bravery from an outstanding young man. It should be commended not vilified.

      "Over the English summer, generally the crowds have been terrific and really added to the contest. But when someone is hurt, yet the boos continue, it's time to call ‘enough.’

      "At any rate, the players have already served the toughest penalties in the history of cricket. Surely it is time to move forward."

      As far as I am concerned the Convicts Cricketers Association can do one. They cheated and will hopefully will get abused for the rest of their careers
      Indeed - they can **** right off.

      They've surrendered the right to claim any moral high ground (not that they had it anyway, quite frankly) for quite some time.

      Stokes isn't going to die wondering...

      34.2 Cummins to Stokes, FOUR runs, fuller from Cummins and edged... but it evades the despairing right hand of Khawaja at gully and races away for four
      34.3 Cummins to Stokes, FOUR runs, shorter, and flayed away through cover for four. Whack!

      106-4, leading by 114

      If Smith is out today they should sort a replacement batsman to go in later.

      This is the full CA statement:

      "Steve has been closely monitored by medical staff overnight and this morning reported that after sleeping well, he woke with "a bit of a headache and a feeling of grogginess." Steve reported that his left arm which was also struck during his innings yesterday was "much better".

      "As part of the Cricket Australia concussion protocol, repeat concussion testing of Steve Smith was also performed this morning and demonstrated some deterioration from his testing which is consistent with the emergence of the symptoms he was reporting. "On that basis Steve has been withdrawn from the match by team doctor Richard Saw and the Australia team will lodge an application for a concussion substitute with the ICC match referee in line with the ICC protocol.

      "Cricket Australia statistics show that 30 per cent of concussions in Australian cricket are delayed. It is not uncommon for players to pass their tests and feel well on the day of an injury and then display symptoms 24 - 48 hours later.

      "In terms of Steve's availability for the third Test, this will be considered over the coming days but the short turnaround to the next Test is not in his favour. Steve's fitness will be assessed on an ongoing basis.

      "Steve will undergo a precautionary scan on his neck on Sunday.

      "Despite the unfortunate nature of what has happened, the positive is that the concussion protocol, including the availability of the concussion substitute, which has been recently brought in has served its purpose. A player is no longer under pressure to take the field when he or she displays symptoms of concussion and a side is not disadvantaged having lost a player to a blow to the head or neck.

      Cricket Australia is proud to have been leaders in this area, having introduced concussion substitutes in domestic cricket and worked with the ICC to introduce them in international cricket."

      With the 3rd test starting Thursday, he might not even make that one either.
