Profile

Alex Barnett learned his game at Brondesbury rather than at school and was selected for Middlesex as a left-arm opening bowler cum batsman, but Don Wilson, the MCC head coach, took one look and converted him into a spinner. He made his debut for Middlesex as a 17-year-old in 1988, and in 1988-89 and 1989-90 toured Pakistan and Australia with the England Under-19 side. But his second county outing did not come until late in 1991 when he took match figures of 7 for 236 against Derbyshire. By then, he had already decided to move to Lancashire as he was not likely to challenge Phil Tufnell for the left-armer's berth. In three seasons at Old Trafford he took 103 first-class wickets, albeit not cheaply, before being released at the end of 1994. He turned out once for Surrey in 1995 and went on to represent Berkshire.
