Dom Leech is a tall new ball seamer who bowls with good pace. He made his Yorkshire first team debut in the shortened 2020 summer, playing two Bob Willis Trophy games and taking four wickets.
Middlesborough born Leech is a bowler who bears significant resemblance to South African great Dale Steyn in terms of his approach to the crease and his action. He played two ODIs for England Under 19s, both against Bangladesh - one away in late January 2019 and another at home in the summer that followed. the Normanby Hall product represented Yorkshire age groups from Under 14s and came through the Academy.
In 2021, he claimed seven wickets in a second team Championship win at Essex in early May, including a first innings five-for. It helped earn him a place in the first team for the drawn Championship Roses clash at Headingley in mid July. But it was a game which ended on a sour note given he dislocated his knee in a fielding accident.
He made a Vitality Blast debut in a win over Birmingham at Edgbaston in mid 2020, sandwiched in between frustrating rib and foot injuries ruining the majority of his summer.
He was a regular in the Yorkshire 1st team during the 2023 One Day Cup tournament, taking key wickets and scoring curcial runs in the lower order. He also represented Northants, on loan in the County Championship 1st Division.
He will spend the winter in Australia, playing 1st Grade cricket in Adelaide.
