England’s batsmen good record against leg spinners

Where the teams generally tend to struggle against the leg-spinners in the modern-day cricket, England's batsmen have been pretty comfortable against them. Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, and Ben Stokes have a combined average of 104.22 against the leg-spinners in England.

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Stokes have never been dismissed by the leg-spinner in England whereas Joe Root has been dismissed only one time by Shadab Khan in the semi-final of Champions Trophy of 2017.

On the other hand, their average against the left-arm spinners is relatively poor (43.94). Most of the teams in ICC World Cup 2019 will use leg-spinners as their trump cards but they might have to revise their strategies against England.
