Profile

Jack Newstead is the only Wisden Cricketer of the Year known to have died and not obituarised in the Almanack at the time of his death. Newstead was chosen in 1909 after a spectacular season in 1908, when he took 140 wickets, at 16.50 each, and scored 927 runs. He played a major role in Yorkshire's return to the top of the County Championship and, had there been a Test series, would probably have played or England. However, this was the extent of his success. He had only just broken into the Yorkshire team after playing twice in 1903 and then joining the MCC staff. The following year, he quickly declined and in 1910 lost his place. Contemporaries described him as having a high and relaxed bowling action just above medium pace: he was regarded as a "talented but careless" batsman.
