SOMERSET spinner Jack Leach claimed 3-75 from 29 overs on a mixed day for England Lions against West Indies A in Jamaica.

The 26-year-old was introduced early by captain Keaton Jennings and had his first scalp when Sharmarh Brooks was tempted down the wicket and stumped by Ben Foakes.

Raymon Reifer was next to fall under Leach's spell, chipping the left-armer to mid-wicket, and when the Somerset man clean bowled Jeremiah Louis - leaving middle stump uprooted - the hosts were reeling on 114-8.

Leach continued to bowl with control, but neither he nor the rest of the attack could break a frustrating partnership between wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, who ended the day unbeaten on 90, and Jomel Warrican (54*).

The pair added 128 to leave West Indies A on 232-8 at the close on day two, still 20 runs adrift of England's first innings total of 252.

Dom Bess was not selected for the match, while Mason Crane - who was picked for England's Ashes squad ahead of Leach and made his Test debut in Sydney - ended the day with 0-43 from 10 overs.
