Jonathan Marc Jonny Bairstow (born 26 September 1989) is an English cricketer, who plays internationally for England, domestically for Yorkshire, and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. A right-hand batsman, he is the only England wicket-keeper twice to claim nine dismissals in a Test match, against South Africa in January 2016, and against Sri Lanka in May 2016. Only Jack Russell (11 dismissals versus South Africa, 1995), and Bob Taylor (10 dismissals versus India 1980) have claimed more in a single Test match.
In 2016, Bairstow set a new record for the most dismissals (70) by a wicket-keeper in a calendar year. In the same year, Bairstow also set a record for most runs in Test matches by a wicket-keeper in a single year. By scoring 1,470 runs in Tests in the year, Bairstow almost doubled the previous record of 777 for England wicket-keepers set by Matt Prior in 2012, and comprehensively surpassed the former record for any Test country of 1,045 runs, held by former Zimbabwe wicket-keeper Andy Flower. He is the first England cricketer to score three consecutive one-day international hundreds.
