Durham First Class Debut - N/A
Included in the First XI for a competitive debut against Lancashire at Southport, Adam Hickey showed he has the appetite and application to succeed in county cricket.
Coming to the crease with 50 runs still required and three wickets in hand, Hickey showed maturity beyond his years to help guide Durham over the line in a tight encounter with an unbeaten 21.
Undeterred by the tenseness of the situation, the left-hander defied Lancashire’s short-ball tactics and played by instinct, launching a huge six onto the pavilion roof.
Add in the two second innings wickets and it was a highly-promising contribution from the all-rounder, who notched up four further wickets in his three-game Championship stint.
Capable of batting anywhere in the order, the 20-year-old also figured prominently for the Second XI and captained them at T20 Finals Day. The former England under-19 international penned a new development contract at the end of 2016.
