Leach’s Serious Knee Injury Adds to England’s Struggles

1 min read

In the first Test match against India, England faced a tough second day in Hyderabad. Spinner Jack Leach suffered a left knee injury while trying to save a boundary on the first day and aggravated the injury on the second day, leaving him limited to just 16 out of 87 overs. England’s spin-bowling coach, Jeetan Patel, mentioned that Leach’s knee injury is serious enough to impact his performance, but he is expected to return for the fourth innings.

Joe Root bowled 25 overs in Leach’s absence but the lack of control from other bowlers allowed India to reach 421 for 7 at stumps. Patel, however, expressed optimism about England’s chances in the match and the series, emphasizing the importance of Leach’s recovery. He mentioned the need for Leach to be smart about his return given the upcoming series.
