Ben Duckett on playing for England team

“It has been a crazy summer. But any opportunity you get to stick on an England shirt is a massive privilege, no matter what the circumstances are,”. Ben Duckett told in an interview with Trent Bridge.

The opener further said on how was his approach after the first test in The Ashes

“In the first Test I nicked off twice to balls on fifth or sixth stump, but to get off the mark at Lord’s, I slashed one over gully, and that’s what Baz [Brendon McCullum] wanted. I spoke to him and Tres [Marcus Trescothick] after the game and they just said ‘next time, smack it over them’. That’s the way they want us to play, not go into our shell,”. Ben Duckett said.
