Name: Jack Leach

Full Name: Matthew Jack Leach

Jack Leach was the unexpected star of the 2016 County Championship. Thrust to prominence by Somerset's decision to gamble on turning wickets at Taunton, and put relegation fears to bed, his left-arm spin proved so destructive that they entered the last day of the Championship season on top of the table and hoping that they might win a first-ever title. It was not to be, as Middlesex pipped them, leaving Leach to reflect on a mighty season in which he took 65 wickets at 21 apiece. A slight figure with a high bowling action, thin of hair and tidy of beard, he bowled in spectacles, a rare thing in 2016, giving him the air of a slightly apologetic junior accountant.
