Profile

Jack Leach - he is known by his middle name - is a tidy left-arm spinner with an unusually high action. He was born in Taunton and developed through the Somerset youth system. He played in the same u13, u15 and u17 sides as Jos Buttler, but while Buttler was always destined for stardom, Leach was obliged to take a job parking trolleys at branch of Sainsbury's supermarket in Taunton.
