Former Australian captain Steve Smith was recently caught up in a bizarre controversy after a picture went viral at the conclusion of the 4th Ashes Test. In that picture, the batsman was wearing glasses while singing a song, celebrating the retention of the prestigious trophy.
The picture lead many to believe that Smith was trying to make fun of English off-spinner Jack Leach who wears spectacles while batting. However, it was later clarified by Justin Langer that Smith was trying to imitate Chris Rogers who was in England for the Ashes four years ago.
Nonetheless, Smith and Leech put all controversy stories to rest by the end of the series as they posed for a picture in the spinner’s glasses. The picture has gone viral on social media ever since as fans have found it to be quite funny.
