The Durham paceman has been the excellent bowler within the county championship this 12 months, with 35 wickets at 18.57 every.
“It was a great debut. Nice to get some wickets early on to settle the nerve. We bowled aggressively and looked to take wickets,” Potts informed Sky Sports.
“A lot of my success is down to my family. It’s a testament to their hard work as well as mine. It was a great kind of achievement. I’m really, really overwhelmed with it.
“Somewhat bit of tear within the eye early on this morning and I can think about my mum and pop would have had a tear in theirs as nicely.”
