Nottinghamshire First Class Debut – 4 September 2018 v Yorkshire 

Ben Duckett joined Nottinghamshire during the closing weeks of the 2018 season, after beginning his career with Northants.

The hard-hitting top order left-hander appeared on course for a debut century at Trent Bridge, but just came up short after making 80 from 89 balls.

Duckett had played a starring role in helping his former county lift the T20 Blast crown in both 2013 and 2016, scoring a man-of-the-match winning 84 to end Notts’ interest in the semi-final three years ago.

Kent-born Duckett – who can also keep wicket – has featured at the highest level of the game, appearing in four Tests, three ODIs and one T20I for England.

He began the 2019 campaign in fine style, making 216 out of an opening partnership of 325 with Ben Slater against Cambridge MCCU at Fenner’s.

The 25-year-old's century against Warwickshire at Edgbaston was decisive in securing a County Championship draw for Notts, while Duckett also made crucial contributions in the Outlaws' runs to the Vitality Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup semi-finals.
