Jonathan Marc "Jonny" Bairstow is an English cricketer, who plays first-class cricket for Yorkshire. A right-hand batsman and wicket-keeper he is the son of former Yorkshire and England keeper David Bairstow and the brother of former Derbyshire player Andrew Bairstow. He top scored 95 in England's first innings in the third test against South Africa at Lords in 2012. In 2008, Bairstow was chosen as the inaugural winner of the Young Wisden Schools Cricketer of the Year award. He was called-up to the first-team squad for the final County Championship match of the season against Sussex but failed to make the starting eleven. At the end of the season he signed a two-year professional contract. Bairstow was a regular in the Yorkshire team in 2010, playing 16 first-class matches and scoring 918 runs. He averaged more than 40 for a second successive season, but could not convert any of his eight fifties into a maiden century. His performances led to selection for the England Performance Programme squad to tour Australia in 2010/11. He was the only Yorkshire batsman to score over 1000 runs in the season and on the back of his strong performances was called up to the England one day squad at the end of the season.
