Langer denies Australia mocked England’s Leach in post match celebrations

Australian coach Justin Langer denied his star batsman Steve Smith mocked an England player during the celebrations of the tourists’ victory in the fourth Ashes test. Media reports said Smith donned a pair of glasses like those worn by England’s bowler and tail-end batsman Jack Leach as Australia marked retaining the trophy by taking an insurmountable 2-1 lead in the five match series. Leach had angered Australia’s players who accused him of time wasting by polishing his glasses as England’s final two batsmen narrowly failed to grind out at draw at Old Trafford. A draw would have kept the Ashes series alive until the last match at the Oval tomorrow.
