players to compete internationally for Canada. A home grown product, son of a former Canadian player, Barry learned his trade in the BC leagues. Barry first played for Canada at age 16 in Toronto in a game against a West Indies "A" team in 1989 and a year later was selected for the 1990 ICC Trophy in Holland. Barry justified the faith of the selectors by arguably being the best spinner in the Tournament.
He bowls slow left-arm orthodox, using his considerable height to flight the ball well. He varies pace and flight, and on a helpful wicket turns the ball sharply. His greatest virtue is his accuracy that enables him to bowl very economically in limted overs cricket.
Barry has played in all Associates /ICC Trophy Events since 1990 including Nairobi, Kenya in 1994 and in Malaysia in 1997. In an effort to improve his game and to better prepare for the Toronto ICC Trophy Barry played in Australia in 2000/01. In the Toronto tourney he again demonstrated that he is a top-class spinner, troubling the best batsmen in the competition and rarely bowling a loose ball. (DL, 2001)
