First-class Cricket
First-class cricket is the highest-standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket. A first-class match is one of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each, although in practice a team might play only one innings or none at all. First-class cricket, along with historical single wicket cricket, single-wicket and modern limited overs cricket, limited-overs forms, is one of the highest-standard forms of cricket. The etymology of "first-class cricket" is unknown, but it was used loosely before it acquired official status in 1895, following a meeting of leading English clubs. At a meeting of the International Cricket Council, Imperial Cricket Conference (ICC) in 1947, it was formally defined on a global basis. A significant omission of the ICC ruling was any attempt to ...

Sammy Jones
Samuel Percy Jones (1 August 1861 in Sydney – 14 July 1951 in Auckland) was an Australian cricketer who played twelve Test cricket, Tests between 1882 and 1888. A solid right-handed batsman and a handy medium pace bowler, Jones excelled for New South Wales cricket team, New South Wales and later for Queensland Bulls, Queensland and Auckland Cricket Association, Auckland. He toured England with the Australians in 1882, 1886, 1888 and 1890, and New Zealand with the Queensland team in 1896–97. On the 1886 tour he scored 1497 first-class runs at 24.95, and two centuries, including his career-best of 151 against the Gentlemen at The Oval. Testament to his batting skill, his first-class career lasted over 30 years. Despite some solid Test knocks for Australia, he is remembered more for a couple of legends of the early days of Test cricket than for anything he did on the field. He was involved, for example, in an incident with WG Grace in the 1882 Test Match, when he was run-ou ...
