England star bowler Jack Leach, who dominated the field on the fourth day of the second Test being played against Sri Lanka, has raised an alarm in India by taking four wickets for 59 runs in Sri Lanka’s second innings. The England tour of Sri Lanka will end on 26 January. After that, the team will visit India, where it has to play a series of four Test matches.
Former England off-spinner Graeme Swann has declared Jack Leach a trump card for England in the Test series against India.
Leach, who made his Test debut against New Zealand in Test cricket in 2018, has played 12 International Test matches, 91 First-Class matches and 16 List A matches. He has a total of 364 wickets, out of which 44 Test, 299 first-class and 21 List A wickets have been taken.
This cricketer of England can be big threat to India
Jack Leach may pose a big threat to the Indian batting line-up in the four-Test series starting next month. Leach is a left-arm spinner and left-arm spinners often pose a challenge in front of Indian batsmen.
Graeme Swann says that the “trump card” of England could play an important role in England’s success. They should bowl straight. He should bowl by targeting the middle stump.
Eye problems since childhood
Jack Leach has problems in his eyes since childhood. He plays with spectacles on. He often cleans glasses during the match.
Thanks to Ben Stocks, they will get glasses for free for life. Actually, it was during the Ashes series in 2019, when he, along with Ben Stokes, won England in the match. Stokes and Jack Leach had snatched the third Ashes test from Australia’s hands in a crucial partnership for the tenth wicket.
Capitalising on the groundswell of positivity English cricket have built up with their maiden World Cup success and an enthralling Ashes series thus far, Specsavers saw their chance to get in on the action following a friendly nudge from Stokes himself.
Free glasses are great, but any spectacle wearer will tell you there’s much more to augmenting your vision than just plonking the pair on your head.
