It will be a different challenge with pink ball and I will be ready: Jack Leach | Cricket News – Times of India

AHMEDABAD: England‘s lead spinner Jack Leach says he’s prepared for a new function because the day/night time pink ball Test towards India seems set to convey the seamers again into the forefront after the tweakers’ domination within the first two matches.
The third Test of the 4-match sequence, that’s levelled at 1-1, will be performed on the refurbished Motera Stadium right here from Wednesday.

Leach is conscious that with the pink ball, which tends to maneuver round a lot greater than the standard crimson cherry, his function might change over the subsequent few days.
“We want to be adaptable, we feel like we’ve got all bases covered in our squad so I think it’s going to be a fascinating Test match if the ball is moving around, and if so, it might be a slightly different role for me,” Leach wrote in ‘Sky Sports’.
“I’ve definitely thought about that – it’ll be a different challenge and I’ll be ready.”
Both sides are cautious of how the pink ball would behave underneath lights on a newly laid strip. Batting within the twilight part has been one of the speaking factors going into the sport, with India opener Rohit Sharma saying he would be additional cautious throughout that interval.
On England’s preparations, Leach mentioned, “We had a good session under lights that started in that twilight period and while I don’t have much experience of playing in these day-night games, I’ve heard that during twilight can be a tough time to bat.
“The pink ball has undoubtedly swung a little bit greater than the crimson one out right here and, for the time being not less than, the pitch seems prefer it’s obtained a bit of grass on it.
“…they might cut all that grass off and it will look very different. It is a truer wicket, then it’ll spin less but if it is like the last Test, then it isn’t going to matter what colour the ball is, it’ll spin!”
Leach, a left-arm spinner, performed down the chatter across the pitch used for the second Test in Chennai, saying the staff gives no excuses for his or her huge 317-run defeat in that match.
“I know a lot of people were talking about the pitch in the last game but for us as players, it’s really important that we’re trying to put good performances in whatever pitch we’re playing on; there are definitely no excuses from inside the camp.
“We need to be adaptable on all surfaces and I assume we have proven that.”
