England spinner Leach needs to follow Andy Murray’s example: Panessa

Leach had a rough start this summer, as he had to sit out for most of the opening Test at Lord’s after a fielding injury. While he retained his place in the squad for the Trent Bridge Test, Leach made a short picking of 3/226 at an average of 75.33.

Panesar said, “(Captain Ben) Stokes will give Leach a few more Tests and if he is unable to perform what the coach and captain want for England in this new form, I am confident that Matt Parkinson will come this summer.” Will play again.” Column for the telegraph.

Panesar, a 50-Test veteran, said Leach should follow the example of tennis legend Andy Murray and appoint a private spin coach to help him out of the slump of form.

“Leach needs to follow the example of Andy Murray, who made the smartest move of his tennis career when he persuaded his mother Judy to train at the Sánchez-Castle Academy in Spain – the traditional way of relying on his development. For Lawn Tennis Association coaches, a somewhat different experience in the British way.

“Murray trained with Rafael Nadal in Barcelona, ​​not spending much of his time with Britain’s best talent. Leach needs his own spin coach he trusts and a one-on-one basis.” But it can work.”

Panesar felt that with the new set-up in England, where they have a new coach in Brendon McCullum, Leach would have to show more drive and commitment.

“A coach from that part of the world (Asia) could be a wise choice because of his successful record in the subcontinent. We need to see a street-fighter and sensible cricketer from him.”

McCullum hinted that two experienced spinners – Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid – could be in his plan as he widened his net to piece together a winning combination, Leach could be the first to be ruled out of an England Test side. .

“I think the next 10 days before the Headingley Test will be a good opportunity for Leach to reflect on the bowling and find out what he is doing successfully and more importantly, why he is providing control from one end. does not make.

“The pressure from Adil Rashid, Parkinson and Moeen may be a blessing for Leach to really fix his bowling or we may have to pigeonhole him as a good bowler when the pitches are turning,” Panesar said.
