West Indies debutant Sunil Ambris has carved himself an unwanted slice of history amid the carnage of the first innings in the Test against New Zealand in Wellington.
He became the very first batsman in the history of Test cricket to be out hit wicket for a golden duck on Test debut. Ambris is also just the sixth batsman overall to be out hit wicket for a golden duck in a Test innings. One of the six was Mike Proctor, against Australia in Port Elizabeth in 1967.
There have been 63 players to make a golden duck on Test debut, including Ambris, with 25 caught, 19 bowled, 16 leg before, one run out, one stumped and, now, one hit wicket.
Meanwhile, The West Indies were bowled out for 134, with Pretoria-born Neil Wagner taking 7-39.
