Adelaide: Former Australian Test wicketkeeper and ex-International Cricket Council (ICC) match referee Barry Jarman has passed away. He was 84.
The South Australian Cricket Association said Jarman died Saturday. They did not give further details.
Jarman made his Test debut in 1959 and was first-choice wicketkeeper Wally Grout’s understudy on tours. 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.
