Profile

Arnold Warren was a tall right-arm fast bowler whose approach to the wicket came courtesy of a long, bounding run. But he was fast, reckoned by many to be the fastest of his generation. He was hampered by playing for an unfashionable county, but he was the first man to take 100 wickets in a season for Derbyshire (1904). He made a solid debut against Australia in the third Test at Headingely in 1905, taking 5 for 57 and 1 for 56 - including Victor Trumper twice - but he was not asked again. As a batsman he liked to hit, and he had a first-class hundred to his name. In 1910 against Warwickshire at Blackwell he scored 123 in under three hours in a ninth-wicket stand of 283, which remains a world record.
