dbo:abstract
  • Sydney Francis Barnes (19 April 1873 – 26 December 1967) was an English professional cricketer who is generally regarded as one of the greatest ever bowlers. He was right-handed and bowled at a pace that varied from medium to fast-medium with the ability to make the ball both swing and break from off or leg. Barnes was unusual in that, despite a very long career as a top-class player, he spent little more than two seasons in first-class cricket, representing Warwickshire and Lancashire. Instead, he preferred league and minor counties cricket for mostly professional reasons. He played for several clubs in the Lancashire, North Staffordshire, Bradford and Central Lancashire leagues between 1895 and 1934. In addition, he had two phases playing for Staffordshire in the Minor Counties Championship. In Test cricket, Barnes played for England in 27 matches from 1901 to 1914, taking 189 wickets at 16.43, one of the lowest Test bowling averages ever achieved. In 1911–12, he helped England to win the Ashes when he took 34 wickets in the series against Australia. In 1913–14, his final Test series, he took a world series record 49 wickets against South Africa. In 1963, Barnes was named by Wisden Cricketers' Almanack in its hundredth edition as one of its "Six Giants of the Wisden Century". In 2008, he had the highest rating among bowlers in the ICC Best-Ever Test Championship Ratings and, in 2009, he was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame. (en)
