Profile

Wisden obituary
The cheerful Jack Oakes was a hard-hitting middle-order batsman and offspin bowler who served Sussex from 1937 to 1951, usually alongside his elder brother Charlie. Born on March 29, 1916, in a cottage by the Horsham ground, where his father was player and groundsman for 47 years, John Ypres Oakes was an extrovert and a popular figure, balding, moustachioed, handy with bat or ball and a superb fieldsman close to the wicket.
