Profile

Cyril Perkins was a slow-left arm bowler who played three seasons for Northamptonshire in the mid 1930s during a dismal period for the county and in 56 appearances never once finished on the winning side. In 2011 he became the 12th first-class cricketer confirmed to have reached 100 year old and is now the oldest living player in the world.
