London: England fast bowler Jofra Archer insisted he had no intention to hit Australia's Steve Smith during the second Ashes Test, saying "everyone's heart skipped a beat" after he felled the star batsman with a fearsome bouncer at Lord's on Saturday.
In an interview with BBC Radio yesterday, Jofra insisted: "That is never the plan (to hit a batsman). You are trying to get a wicket first. To see him go down, everyone stopped and everyone's heart skipped a beat."
