Ashes 2019: Aussie coach Justin Langer denies Steve Smith mocked Jack Leach

He also played a key role during a 10th-wicket partnership with centurion Ben Stokes during England's triumph in the third Ashes series Test at Headingley in Leeds.

The obvious conclusion was that he was unkindly parodying England's Jack Leach, though Australia coach Langer insists Smith was mimicking Chris Rogers - who last played for Australia in 2015.

"Experience tells me when you're doing well people try and pick holes in you".

"That is actually the truth of it. Chris Rogers is a great mate of the squad, that's what it was about". People can make of it what they like. We can't do anything of what people make of it. That's OK, that's life. I think the Australian team have bowled pretty well to him, so we'll see how things go further down the line. "People can make up what they like about it, but that's the truth".

"When you have a good day you have to celebrate it as long as you move on and get ready for the next one". I don't know whose brain spark it was to leave Woakes out of the Old Trafford Test, but they probably don't deserve to be a selector anymore, ' added Pietersen. "But he's also a world class player", Langer added.

"I'm a hard marker, so I'll say five", Bayliss joked when ask to mark his tenure out of ten.

"No one's mentioned it, no one's spoken about it, all the talk had been from you guys".

The final test at the Oval in London begins on Thursday local time.

The tourists are set to continue with David Warner at opener, even though he has only reached double figures once in eight innings.

"From a cricket sense we've had a lot of good performances, the cherry on top the World Cup win".

"I don't want to see the crowd talking about how amusing he is, or how amusing that run was, or Specsavers". However, Langer said he was not anxious about the opening batsman's form.
