Profile

Joe Leach, a thickset and bustling seam bowling allrounder, has won considerable respect for his efforts on behalf of Worcestershire, so much so that he was appointed as captain in succession to Daryl Mitchell at the end of 2016. Leach established himself as a key member of the Worcestershire side with a series of consistent performances in 2015 and ended the season named as the club's vice-captain. The following summer, his all-round impact with bat and ball persuaded Worcestershire that he had become the heartbeat of the club.
