Not many fast bowlers have bowled to a field on debut like Matty Potts. As he delivered the last over against Kent at Canterbury during the 2017 season, he was given a field with nine slips. Sadly the dream sequence was not quite perfect and he did not manage to seal victory, Kent clinging on with nine wickets down.
Potts, a graduate of the Durham academy, won England Under-19 recognition and was awarded a three-year contract until 2020. His opportunities were limited at first, but 2019 saw him kick on in the limited-overs formats, a haul of 17 wickets in his debut Blast season leading the way for Durham.
