Profile

An offspinner and lower middle-order batsman, Jamie Sykes had the potential to become a useful county allrounder but was stymied by a lack of opportunities at a time Middlesex were blessed with spinners, and also by his own volatile character. Described by one team-mate as the kind of person "you could call if someone owned you money and wanted to speed things up a little", he managed to rub the wrong people up and that ultimately proved his downfall. He broke into the Middlesex side with a hundred against Cambridge at the start of the 1985 season, but despite an extended run he failed to capitalize, and then was a regular in the one-day side in 1988 and 1989. He left the county at the end of that season.
