THERE is no place for Jack Leach in England’s 12-man squad for the third Test against the West Indies in St Lucia.

Leach has not featured in either of the first two Tests, both comfortably won by the hosts, and will not be part of the England side trying to restore some pride in the final Test of the series.

Mark Wood and Keaton Jennings have come into the squad, with Ben Foakes dropping out and Joe Denly likely to move down to number three.

Leach has now experienced both extremes of touring, having played a key role in the 3-0 series win in Sri Lanka before Christmas before being reduced to a drinks carrying role in the Caribbean.

The Somerset man told the Guardian this week: “That’s been interesting to experience, the highs and lows and how more experienced players go about dealing with that. It’s about dusting yourself down to go again.”

“With my role I have to be patient. I came here last year on the A tour and ragged square [the ball turned a lot]. So I arrived thinking I’d be more involved.

“It just shows they can prepare whatever wickets they want here and I wouldn’t have expected to play in the two games so far.

“So it’s all about helping the guys and learning as much as I can. I don’t feel I have wasted time. I feel like I have made improvements.”

Leach also admitted he may consider a loan move away from Somerset if he is not included in the county’s white-ball team – click here to read more.
