England lose another player as spin bowler Jack Leach heads home ahead of 3rd Test vs South Africa
The England team celebrate the wicket of Anrich Nortje during day five of the second cricket test between South Africa and England at the Newlands Cricket Stadium in Cape Town
England spin bowler Jack Leach will return home after failing to regain match fitness following a run of illness, the England and Wales Cricket Board said on Tuesday.
Leach contracted sepsis on the tour to New Zealand last year and has suffered from bouts of gastroenteritis and flu in South Africa. He hasn't played in any of England's games in South Africa and will return home on Thursday, the day the third test starts in Port Elizabeth.
