Jack available for opening fixtures

England management have today announced the player availability schedule for the opening month of the domestic cricket season.

Following the announcement, Somerset supporters have received a boost after it was revealed that Jack Leach will be available for all of the fixtures in April.

Somerset begin the season with the visit of newly-promoted Kent to the Cooper Associates County Ground. This Specsavers County Championship match begins on Friday April 5th.

This is followed by a trip to Trent Bridge to take on Nottinghamshire in the same competition.

2018 was another impressive year for Jack. His performances in red-ball cricket were outstanding and he finished the season with 30 Championship wickets at an average of 24.07. This included a career-best of eight for 85 against Essex.

That form saw him selected for the England Test tours of Sri Lanka and the West Indies this winter.

Jack excelled in Sri Lanka with hisĀ 18 wickets, at an average of just 21.38, helping England to a series whitewash.
