England Spinner Jack Leach after analyzing the Indian batsman has felt that Virat Kohli’s men would cause problems for England bowlers during the 4 match test series. Jack Leach who will be one of the leading spinners in the England team, has to be at his best to dismiss the Indians who are accustomed to playing spin really well. Leach has taken 44 wickets in 12 matches for England and was part of the recent successful tour of Sri Lanka.
Jack Leach’s supportive role-playing at number 11 with Ben Stokes in the famous Ashes Test at Headingley will be remembered forever. He made his test debut 3 years back in 2018 against New Zealand and has never been able to establish his place in the playing line up. He has been in and out of the side, while this tour will be a great opportunity for him to cement his place as the number one spinner alongside Dominic Bess and Moeen Ali.
Jack Leach’s Analysis Of Indian Batsman
Jack Leach had told that he has watched the analysis of Indian batsman and has felt that they will be causing a problem to England bowlers. He added that his experience in Sri Lanka will come in handy while bowling in India and also the experience of bowling to some great batsman including Angelo Mathews is Sri Lanka had improved his confidence.
He said that he doesn’t want to complicate things and is looking to stick to his strengths.
“Yaa we have been watching a lot of analysis of Indian batter. So, yaa getting to know how they play. I think they will gonna cause a problem I guess. I had that experience in Sri Lanka with guys like Angelo Mathews. I guess playing in Sri Lanka and in playing in those wickets is a good experience to draw on so soon,” Jack Leach said.
“I think it’s mainly about sticking to what I do well and knowing that I have had the experience of bowling to very good batters in the world so I don’t want to complicate things much. Obviously, I am aware of their strengths and I’m gonna be sticking about what I do best,” he added.
Covid Situation Not Helping Leach
Leach told that year 2020 did not go as he would have liked due to the corona situations but made good fun at home by bowling in the mirrors. He also was eagerly waiting to get back on the ground and do some training before the first test starts on February 5.
“I think, in the last year or so related to Covid some things haven’t been ideal. It’s about able to adapt and go with the flow.
“I have done some reflecting, bowled a few in the mirrors (laughs) but yaa obviously I am eager to get back out there tomorrow and get some training before that first Test,” Jack Leach further said.
Jack Leach will be hoping to play a huge part in the series with the pitches in India assisting spin mostly.
