Ben Duckett "feeling good" as opener but would be happy to debut in any position
Ben Duckett hinted he would prefer to open the batting if he makes his Test debut for England against Bangladesh later this week.
Duckett has put himself firmly in the frame for consideration as an opener or in the middle order following a phenomenal past few weeks in which he has amassed four half-centuries in his last five innings in Bangladesh.
He followed up a brace of fifties in the preceding one-day series with 59 off 63 balls in England's first warm-up fixture, while he marked his 22nd birthday with an innings of 60 against a Bangladesh Cricket Board XI on Monday.
