Jack Leach picked for the England 30-man squad

Taunton born and raised, Jack has come a long way since he was a trolley boy at his local Sainsbury’s supermarket! He now has ten Test matches under his belt, with 34 wickets and a Test match fifty to his name.

 

The 29-year-old represented NCCA side Dorset in the 2010 championship, taking 6/21 in the final against Lincolnshire, before making his first-class debut for Somerset in 2012. 

 

He has amassed nearly 300 first class wickets for his home county, opening the eyes of the England selectors with his unerringly accurate left arm spin. Experiences with the England Lions saw him take the best figures by an Englishman at this level, with his 8-110 against West Indies A in 2018.

 

His Test debut followed shortly after, in the second Test against New Zealand at Christchurch. Along with his spin bowling prowess, his belligerent batting has also proven effective, notably in the 76-run partnership with Ben Stokes to win the Headingly Ashes Test in the summer of 2019.

 

A cult hero already with a proud NCCA history.
