Sunil Ambris: Career Highlights
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 also becomes the first batsman in Test cricket to get out hit-wicket for a golden duck on his debut. He was the first player to be dismissed hit-wicket twice in consecutive Tests and the first to be dismissed hit-wicket on test debut.
Things only got worse for him as Trent Boult did the same in the second Test and then the worst transpired as trying to avoid another short ball, he fractured his left arm. His maiden Test series had ended and that too on a painful note, mentally and physically.
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.
