Ben Duckett Test Career

In his Test debut against Bangladesh, Duckett contributed 14 and 15 runs in the first and second innings, respectively, as England secured a 22-run victory. In the second Test, despite England’s loss, he notched his maiden Test half-century with a score of 56 in the second innings.

During the 2016 India tour, Duckett batted at number 4, with Haseeb Hameed opening. He made 13 runs in the first Test and was unable to bat in the second innings due to a draw. In the second Test, he managed only five runs in the first innings and was dismissed for a duck in the second innings as England suffered a defeat.

However, Duckett’s journey was marred during the 2017–18 Ashes tour when he was deselected from the England team due to an incident at a Perth bar, where he allegedly poured a drink over teammate James Anderson. This led to his suspension from playing in the final three England Lions games of the tour and a fine. He was also dropped from the 2018 England Lions tour of the West Indies.

In 2022, Duckett returned to the England side for the tour of Pakistan. His inclusion was attributed to his suitability for the Bazball style of cricket embraced by the team under Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum. Duckett’s return immediately paid off with him and Zak Crawley forming the fastest-ever century opening stand for England (83 balls) and the fastest double-century partnership in Test cricket history (233 balls). He retained his place in the side for the remainder of the series.

Ben Duckett Domestic Career

Duckett debuted for Northamptonshire in the 2012 Friends Life t20 against Gloucestershire while still in his first year of A-levels at Stowe School. In the 2015 season, he achieved four centuries in the County Championship, surpassing the thousand-run mark with 1002 runs at an average of 52.73.

The 2016 season proved highly successful for Duckett. He began with a career-best score of 282 not out against Sussex and added three more first-class centuries, totaling 1338 runs at 58.17. He also contributed significantly to Northants’ victory in the Twenty20 Blast final, notably scoring 84 off 47 balls in the semi-final. His outstanding performances earned him the young cricketer of the year awards from both the Cricket Writers’ Club and the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA). He also became the first player to win both PCA awards in a single season.

In March 2019, Duckett set a Nottinghamshire record by scoring a double century against Cambridge MCCU in the 2019 Marylebone Cricket Club University Matches, achieving the milestone from 168 balls, making it the fastest first-class double century by a Nottinghamshire batsman.

Duckett’s Under-19 career saw him representing England in the 2012 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. He later earned a spot in the England Lions squad for the series against Pakistan A and Sri Lanka A in July 2016. In a memorable match, he scored an unbeaten 163 off just 104 balls and followed it up with a remarkable 220* off 131 balls in partnership with Daniel Bell-Drummond.
