Jack Leach cleaning his spectacles while the third Ashes Test was turning out be one of the all-time classics will remain an iconic figure. England all-rounder Ben Stokes staged a heroic one man stand to lead his side to a historic Ashes comeback while Jack Leach sat back, polished his glasses and shared the spoils. Not many would have given England a chance of winning the Test after they were reduced to 286 for 9 while chasing 359.

With 73 runs needed and Australian bowlers in fine rhythm, it looked nothing less than mission impossible for England. But Stokes took the onus on himself to play one of the greatest innings of all time to power England to a series-levelling win. He launched a stunning counter-assault to leave the Aussies shell-shocked.

He hit off-spinner Nathan Lyon for three sixes and followed that up by hitting Josh Hazlewood for four, six and six in three consecutive balls, during which point he passed his century. With 17 needed to win, Stokes was dropped by a diving Marcus Harris. From the next over, with only two needed, Leach should have been run out, only for Lyon to fumble the ball and, from the very next delivery, Stokes could have been lbw, but Australia were out of reviews.

In the following over, Leach scampered for a single before Stokes hit a four to seal a memorable win. As soon as Stokes hit the winning runs, the cricketing world went crazy and rightly so. And while Stokes was getting all the attention, Leach was rightly lauded for his brave knock too.

Soon after the win, the official sponsors of the series, Specsavers took to Twitter too to put a cheeky message about Leach. “Does anybody know Jack Leach’s agent? Asking for a friend….,” wrote Specsavers.

Ben Stokes’ advise

Well, the tweet from the sponsors was noticed by Stokes too and he ended up giving them an advise. The star all-rounder asked Specsavers to give Jack Leach free glasses for the rest of his life, tweeting, “Jack Leach……..@Specsavers do your self a favour and give him free glasses for life  @jackleach1991”

Well, Specsavers did not take long to reply to Stokes’ tweet and confirmed that they will provide Jack Leach with free glasses for his life.
