Coach

An enthusiastic allrounder, Barry Knight was a good enough batsman to score two Test centuries and complete the domestic double four times for Essex. But his bowling, which featured an unusual wristy flourish just before delivery, wasn't quite fast enough to earn him the new ball for England ahead of the likes of John Snow and Ken Higgs. After falling out with Essex he spent three years with Leicestershire, but left them in 1969, the year of his last Test appearance. Following some business troubles, Knight bravely upped sticks to Australia, and forged a successful coaching career in Sydney, where he ran a successful indoor school, and was a mentor to the young Allan Border.
