Profile

Paul Jarvis showed immense potential as a young player. The youngest-ever cricketer to represent Yorkshire in the County Championship (aged 16 and two months) in 1981, he never reached the heights his talents promised. Relentlessly injury-prone, he was also a victim of some of the most fickle selectorial whimsy. Jarvis became the youngest player to take hat-tricks in the Sunday league (1982) and the Championship (1985), and was viewed as Yorkshire's cutting edge while still a teenager. Relatively short for a quick bowler (5'10"), he generated good pace from a short, fast run up, and an athletic leap with a very quick arm action. He suffered from injury in both 1984 and 1985, slowing his progress, probably as a consequence of over-bowling at such a young age, but won his county cap in 1986 following match figures of 11 for 92 against Middlesex.
