A few days ago, Steve Smith apparently took a jibe at England’s Jack Leach by wearing exactly the same pair of glasses won the spinner. The incident happened after Australia won the last test match by 185 runs and were celebrating hard after winning the series. The picture of Steve Smith mocking at Jack Leach went viral on social media. Now on Friday, Somerset tweeted a picture of Steve Smith and Jack Leach having a chat with each other. Steve Smith 'Ridicules' Jack Leach With His Glasses Celebration After Retaining Ashes Trophy, Cricket Fans Slam Australian Batsman's 'Classless' Mockery!

The caption shared by Somerset said, “One of the greatest batsmen of this generation having a chat with Steve Smith at the Oval this evening.” Steve Smith has been in tremendous form in the Ashes 2019 as he has slammed 751 runs in four Test matches. In the last game, Smith slammed a double century which led the team to win the game.
