IND vs ENG: Jack Leach has taken 16 wickets in three Tests.

India vs England: Jack Leach agreed with Ravichandran Ashwin that chatter about the surface has been more in the media than in England’s dressing room.

Spinner Jack Leach said on Monday that England were not impressed with the condition of the pitches in India, but were keen to learn from their two-day defeat before the final Test starts this week. The Joe Root-led England won the 10-wicket haul on the Ahmedabad track last week in less than two days and trailed the four-match series 2–1.

Former England cricketers, including Michael Vaughan and David Lloyd, slammed the pitch at the world’s largest stadium, hosting their first international game since renewal.

But left-arm spinner Leach, who has taken 16 wickets in three Tests, said his side is focused on getting things right in the match starting on Thursday.

“I think there’s really not much to say about the pitch, I think we’ve got ahead in those situations and for me, I’m always looking forward to learning and getting better and ways to improve. I am watching every challenge, ”Leach told reporters. .

“I think their spinners bowled really well, and I don’t think we should take anything away from them by saying bad things about the wicket.”

Indian spinners Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin took 18 wickets between them as England were dismissed for 112 and 81 runs.

Leach agreed with Ashwin that nonsense about the surface is more in the media than in England’s dressing room.

Ashwin said, “Ashwin is a world class bowler. Axar Patel was very accurate. I want to say that he bowled very well and that is what I am looking at and seeing how I can get better and all my attention.” That’s it. “

“In dressing, we are only trying to get better and be ready for this next match.”

Leitch, who made his Test debut in 2018, said he had come of age as a spinner on this tour of the subcontinent, which included England’s 2–0 Test sweep in Sri Lanka.

The 29-year-old said, “I don’t think I can really expect too much from myself how I’ve done and how to get better through the tour.”

“It has given me a lot of confidence that I can play and play a lot for England.

The game has more stakes than series. India should avoid defeat to make it to the World Test Championship final against New Zealand at Lord’s in June.
