The South Australian Cricket Association said on Saturday (July 18) that former Australian test wicketkeeper and ex-International Cricket Council match referee Barry Jarman has died aged 84. Jarman made his Test debut in 1959 and was first-choice wicketkeeper Wally Grout's understudy on the tour. The South Australian kept wicket more regularly for Australia after Grout's retirement in 1966, playing 12 tests in 13 months before he also retired.

Jarman captained Australia in a Test match during the 1968 Ashes tour of England when Bill Lawry was injured. Overall Jarman played in 19 tests and scored two half-centuries among his 400 runs at an average of 14.81. 

“He was one of South Australia's internationally known names and was a great competitor and gentleman, who appreciated the way the game should be played and always had a terrific sense of humour,” South Australian Cricket Association president Andrew Sinclair said.
