Same claim was made before he was the best spinner in county cricket for 3 years running, and before he played 8 short format games for England with success. Now he's got Monty numb nuts Panedar writing articles about him failing after he bowled 14 overs and got the only wicket by a spinner on a green top.

Unfortunately England squad seems to be very cliquey and his face doesn't fit, whilst confident but limited players like Bess get decent runs in the team. For a new era there are remarkably few changes to a playing squad which was badly found out last winter.

Wouldn’t want any England player to fail but if Leach doesn’t perform in this Test, it should give Parky a chance to establish himself in the Team. You do fear though that even given a chance, without a good performance, the established players will be brought back. Hopefully, Parky will rise to the challenge.

Hard to see England have moved away from the system where certain players have to overtly fail for 6 months in a row before they get dropped - stability is key, even when it's stability of shit it seems

Starting to get excited to see if Leach can bring up his century unbeaten.

 

(no offence to the lad, but he's not from Bolton and he's clearly not a special player who you stick with to avoid giving the outstanding English spinner of the last 10 years a go).

Kiwi part timer getting plenty out of the pitch.

 

Leach if the sort of player you can with win, but you'll never win because of him. Nonsensical to stay loyal when you at least have a chance to find out more about a player who's a genuine match winner at the 2nd highest level.

Bubbling up nicely 

Yep - we'd be over the line already with a decent spinner😋

Considering how good Bracewell looked, pretty poor leach's only wicket came as they were trying to batter him without respect.

just don't get what leach brings to the team,hes average at best will never bowl a side out on a turning wicket, if hes the best in the country then we will never be the no1 test team in the world.

don't think he'd get 50 wickets in Bolton league

It might shut somebody up...

Fwiw, our biggest issue was is and remains, the top 3

Some promising signs - id given up on pope - but still a long way to go

That's got to be extremely rare for a team scoring 550 odd in an innings ends up losing, was great entertainment, positive signs, but still some weaknesses, really want Archer to get back and fit.

One of the highest first innings scores to lose
