Since completing a 12-month ball-tampering ban, Australia star batsman Steve Smith emerged as the national hero by playing a remarkable inning in the 4th Test of the ongoing Ashes series as Australia retained the Ashes urn by defeating England by 185 runs.

However,  a picture of Smith mocking England's glasses-wearing Jack Leach raged the England fans on Twitter. The bespectacled Jack Leach was the hero of the 3rd Test apart, who remained unbeaten scoring just one run in his 76-run partnership with Stokes to lead England to a one wicket win and level the series 1-1.

According to several media reports, Smith was seen not only mocking Leach by wearing specs but the Aussie batsman was also seen shadow batting left-handed in the "middle of a team huddle" as the visitors were celebrating their victory in the fourth Test.
