England spinner Jack Leach encountered a unique situation in the rain-hit Day 1 of the ongoing fourth Ashes Test in Sydney. Leach obliged to a bizarre request made by a fan as the 30-year-old was seen signing an autograph on his bald head. 

The incident, which was cheered by the fans present at the stands, took place in the final session of the day when Australia were batting at 117/3.  

Meanwhile, Leach rolled his arms for just two overs before the close of play, which saw only 46.5 overs being bowled in total. Australia, who won the toss and opted to bat, ended the day with126 on the board for the loss of three wickets.
