Dennis Amiss

Between 1960 and 1987, Amiss established himself as Warwickshire's best ever home grown batsman. At his retirement aged 44 he had scored the most runs (35146) and most centuries (78) for the county.

Twenty times he had scored 1000 runs in a season to make him equal record holder with WG Quaife, and uniquely for a Warwickshire player had scored at least one century, and more than 1000 runs against every other first-class county.

At Test level Amiss scored 3612 runs, average 46.30, with 11 centuries. His 1379 runs in Test matches in 1974 remains a record for an English batsman in a calendar year.
