Among the English first-class sides playing in the County Championships, Warwickshire, located in the area known as the Midlands, has been one of the most important as far as the domestic cricketing structure is concerned.
It gained first-class class status back in 1894, and since then, they have enjoyed a lot of success in English first-class cricket. Over the course of its history, the team has produced plenty of outstanding cricketers who have not only gone on to represent the county with distinction but have also been among some of the best players to have represented England in international cricket.
Here is a look at 10 of the best players of all time from Warwickshire.
Right arm medium pace bowler Sydney Santall played for Warwickshire for 22 years between 1892 and 1914 and emerged as one of the most successful bowlers in the history of the county. He was part of the team that helped Warwickshire get promoted back in 1894, and over the next two decades, was the rock of its bowling attack.
Santall topped the bowling charts several times in his career, picking up 1207 wickets during the course of his first-class career with Warwickshire. Santall played 374 first-class games in his career and averaged 23.97. While he did not go on to play for England, he remains one of Warwickshire's all-time greats.
