Profile

Many England cricketers have passed through the Under-19 side, such is the level of age-group planning, but few can boast the Under-19 World Cup batting average achieved by Ben Duckett. He is one of two players - the England captain Alastair Cook being the other - to have averaged more than 60 in the tournament. He also collected man-of-the-match awards with 61 against India in the quarterfinal and a century as England beat Australia by one-wicket in the third-place play-off. Duckett, a wicketkeeper and left-handed batsman, and a product of Stowe School, is also making strides at Northants where he has been part of the youth set-up since 11 years old. He made his first team debut at 17 and soon made a maiden fifty against Leicestershire. He then received an unexpected summons to the Northants side as they won the Twenty20 trophy against Surrey at Edgbaston because of an injury sustained by Kyle Coetzer in the semifinal earlier in the day. A few months later, he was dropped by England Under-19s for failing a fitness test and admitted that "complacency" had crept in. His success in the World Cup was proof of his positive response. one."
