Who is Barry Sinclair?

Barry Whitley Sinclair is a former New Zealand cricketer who played 21 Test matches as a specialist batsman from 1962-63 to 1967-68.

Sinclair scored three of his six first-class centuries in Tests, yet never played in a winning Test side. He captained New Zealand in three Tests and also in the four-match series against the visiting Australian team in 1966-67 and on the brief tour to Australia in 1967-68.

His highest Test score was 138 against South Africa in Auckland in 1963-64, made in 345 minutes out of a team total of only 263. It was the only century by either side in the three-Test series, and was at the time the highest Test score by a New Zealander in New Zealand. He took two Test wickets in ten overs, both against Pakistan in Lahore in 1964-65.

He played for Wellington from 1955-56 to 1970-71. His first century came against Northern Districts in 1963-64, when he made 102 not out, out of a team total of 138 for 5, to take Wellington to a five-wicket victory almost single-handedly. His highest first-class score was 148, captaining Wellington against the Australians in 1966-67, out of a total of 365 for 7 on the first day.
