Since 1 June 2019, there have been TEN (10) golden ducks or primaries, compared to 14 in the previous full year.

Pat Cummins delivered the last Primary in the ODI vs India at Rokjat on 17th January where he was bowled by Shami. Sadly this was Pat’s 3rd since June 2019 – but he’s still the best bowler in the world! On a positive note however, it adds to the Primary Club fine haul for this year, with members encouraged to pay $10 for every golden duck by an Aussie in a first class game.

The List of Primaries to date for this year are:

  • Joe Burns in the Test vs New Zealand at Melbourne on 26th December: B Boult
  • Aaron Finch in the T20 vs Sri Lanka at Brisbane on 30th October: C Perera, B Malinga
  • Josh Hazlewood in the Ashes Test vs England at The Oval on 15th September: C Root, B Leach
  • Pat Cummins in the Ashes Test vs England at The Oval on 13th September: LBW Curran
  • Rachael Haynes in the ODI vs West Indies in Antigua on 6th August: C Boyce, B Connell
  • Aaron Finch in the ODI WORLD CUP SEMI vs England at Birmingham on 11th July: LBW Archer
  • Jason Behrendorff in ODI World Cup vs New Zealand at Lord’s on 29th June: LBW Boult
  • Mitchell Starc in ODI World Cup vs New Zealand at Lord’s on 29th June: B Boult
  • Pat Cummins in ODI World Cup vs Sri Lanka at The Oval on 15th June: Run Out
