Jack Leach spins England to victory.


JACK Leach claimed his first five wicket haul for England to bowl his country to victory over Sri Lanka in Kandy and give them a 2-0 lead in the three match series.

Jack ended with eight wickets in the match- a dream come true for the 27 year old Taunton boy who spent his holidays stacking trollies in Sainsbury's town centre super market.

After the match 'Leachy' said: Its a great feeling. These boys (Moeen and Adil Rashid) have helped me out so much. It was good to play on this wicket but, at other times, I felt it was tough.

Jack is the first Somerset bowler to claim five wickets in a Test for England, since Richard Johnson against Zimbabwe in 2003.
