I`ll bat anywhere, says Ben Duckett

Sport Desk: Ben Duckett says he has no preference where he bats in the England order if he gets the opportunity to make his Test debut later this week.

The in-form Northants man turned 22 on Monday and celebrated with 60 against a Bangladesh Cricket Board XI, his fourth half-century in five innings.

The first Test now looms large in Chittagong on Thursday and Duckett has been widely tipped for a first cap.

But, while it was initially thought that he was vying with Haseeb Hameed to partner skipper Alastair Cook at the top of the order, there is another scenario in which both youngsters play, with Duckett coming in for Gary Ballance in the middle order.

Duckett told Sky Sports News HQ: "All I can hope for is, if there is a spot, that I take that opportunity and try and score as many runs as I can for the team.

"Playing for England is a dream for me and every other cricketer. Wherever I do slide in in that side, if I do get picked, then I`ll be happy wherever.

"These couple of days have helped me get used to the heat, the conditions, the way that they bowl, and I definitely feel ready."

However, Duckett can expect to be tested by more spin bowling in the opening Test, having been facing mainly seamers in the warm-up matches.

"I haven`t actually faced a lot of spin in the last couple of games here," he added. "So I`ll probably have to get in the nets in the next couple of days and face more spin, because I only batted for the first session against a majority of the seamers.

"It`s going to be different facing their spinners out here and it`s going to be a challenge that I look forward to."
