Steve Smith leaving the ball in various postures during the 2nd Ashes Test Lord’s

Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler will resume the England innings from an overnight score of 96/4 as the hosts have managed to take a slender lead of 104 runs.

Smith was defying the England bowling attack on the fourth day of the test match before he was left with no choice but to the leave the field after Jofra Archer's deadly bouncer nearly knocked him out unconscious.

He was felled by a vicious bouncer from Jofra Archer in the first innings.

Australia, bidding for their first Ashes campaign triumph on English soil in 18 years, lead the five-match series 1-0 after a 251-run win at Edgbaston last week.

This series is the first being played under the International Cricket Council's new concussion substitute regulations, part of the inaugural World Test Championship.

The fifth day had started with rain and a delay of an hour and 10 minutes before, shortly after play got underway, Cricket Australia confirmed that Smith would not feature again in the match due to delayed concussion with Labuschagne coming in as the "like-for-like" replacement.

Having passed the concussions tests on Saturday following a nasty blow to the neck off Archer, Smith was said to have woken up with a headache and a feeling of grogginess and subsequently showed signs of concussion in a follow-up assessment.

England take on Australia in the second Test at Lords.

Warner was caught at third slip by Rory Burns for five and Khawaja nicked the ball to wicketkeeper Bairstow to leave Australia reeling at 19-2. For Australia, Nathan Lyon will be the key man and would look for support from Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood.

The first over after tea saw struggling opener Cameron Bancroft (16) plumb lbw to a ball that kept low from Leach, with Australia in trouble at 47-3.

It was Leach (3-37) who made the breakthrough, though, as Labuschagne swept, the ball ricocheted off Buttler at short leg and looped up towards square leg where Root dived forward to take the catch.

Australia will head to Leeds for the third test starting on Thursday on course to win the Ashes in England for the first time since 2001 but Smith's fitness will be a matter of serious concern.
