TWENTY GOLDEN DUCKS IN 2016/17

June 8, 2017 by  

Comments Off on TWENTY GOLDEN DUCKS IN 2016/17

Primary Club Members will be disappointed to learn that Aussie batsmen over the 2016/17 financial year suffered the first-ball duck, or 'primary', on 20 occasions in international matches - 15 by male players and 5 by females.  However, this of course has a positive twist in that all our members are 'fined' $10 for each such event, meaning our charity trust account should receive a healthy boost when our 2017/18 renewal notices go out in early June.

The offending Aussie batsmen were:
  • Tim Payne, Jhye Richardson, Ashleigh Gardner and Megan Schmidt in Twenty/20s;
  • Adam Zampa, Aaron Finch twice, Mitchell Starc, Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Hazelwood, Elyse Villani twice and Alex Blackwell in ODIs; and
  • Peter Nevill, Mitchell Starc, Usman Khawaja, Adam Voges and Nathan Lyon twice in Test Matches.

All such fines are optional and therefore tax-deductible donations, which go straight into our charity account!
