Playing Role

Opening Batter

Sunil Ambris, a right-hand batsman from St Vincent, made one of the most unusual starts to a Test career when he was out hit-wicket off the first ball he ever faced, against New Zealand in Wellington in December 2017. Stepping onto the back foot against a rising delivery from Neil Wagner, Ambris trod onto his stumps.

If that wasn't enough, he was dismissed in the same manner in his second Test as well - this time it was Trent Boult who pushed him back with a well-directed short ball. In the second innings of that Hamilton Test, another short ball brought a premature end to Ambris' tour, Wagner fracturing his left forearm.

Ambris had a modest first-class record, with a batting average in the low 30s, when he was chosen for the tour of New Zealand, but had impressed the selectors with his 50-overs form, scoring two hundreds for West Indies A in a five-match series against Sri Lanka A.
