County Stats (19/20 season)




  • Harry Duke is a wicketkeeper-batsman with England Under 19s experience.

    A 19-year-old from Wakefield, Duke represented his country at the age-group World Cup in South Africa at the start of 2020 when England won the Plate final.

    That was a consolation prize having initially failed to qualify out of the group stage.

    He represented the Under 19s six times in all, both in South Africa and on a tournament warm-up tour of the West Indies just beforehand.

    He is on a rookie contract at Emerald Headingley, but he is yet to make his first-team debut.

    Duke first wore the White Rose at Under 14s level in the summer of 2015.

    He scored two centuries at Under 17s level in 2018 and 2019; 138 not out against Derbyshire and then 104 against Durham. He batted at six in the first game and opened the batting in the latter.

    He has played league cricket for the Academy, whom he joined in 2017, in the Yorkshire Premier League North and for Hunslet Nelson in the Bradford League.

    Duke first represented the Yorkshire second team in a T20 fixture against Derbyshire in 2018 and notes former England and Gloucestershire keeper Jack Russell as his cricketing hero.

    He was educated at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Wakefield.

    Duke spent parts of the 2020/21 winter training with the England Young Lions squad at Loughborough alongside Yorkshire team-mates Matthew Revis and Sam Wisniewski. White Rose coaches Andrew Gale and Rich Pyrah were part of the England coaching staff.
