Leach keen to build on great day


Leach keen to build on great day

Jack Leach admitted the second day of the first Test against Sri Lanka could not have gone any better for England.

England, who had been 103-5 at one point on the first day in Galle, recovered to eventually post a first-innings total of 342, thanks largely to a century on his Test debut by Ben Foakes.

Sri Lanka were then dismissed for only 203 with Moeen Ali excelling with figures of 4-66. Adil Rashid finished with 2-30 and Leach 2-41. England had moved on to 38-0 in their second innings by the close.

Leach said: "A great day. It couldn't have gone much more to plan really. The guys had a word and said we did what we set out to do today.

"Foakesy got his hundred which was great and we got as many runs as we could, and then it was a case of trying to build some pressure on them and get some early inroads. We managed to do that, Jimmy [Anderson] and Sammy [Curran] bowled brilliantly and that took a lot of pressure off us spinners.

"Mo, Rash and myself bowled well. Mo deserved his four wickets. It was great to be involved in that group of spinners, I really enjoyed it.

"I feel like we complement each other nicely. We have a good relationship off the field which helps, we are always trying to bounce ideas off each other."

England are now 1/10 to win the first Test, while a Sri Lanka victory is available at 11/1 and the draw 14/1.
