Former Australia Test captain Barry Jarman has passed away aged 84 with an illness. The stocky wicketkeeper played 19 Test matches for the country between 1959 and 1969 and was a mainstay of the South Australia side, for whom he played the bulk of his 191 first class appearances across 13 seasons.

Jarman made his Test debut in Kanpur during the tour of India in 1959. However, his appearances in the white flannes of Australia were sporadic given the selectors' preference for Queensland stumper Wally Grout. However, Jarman toured regularly as Grout's understudy and was an important voice in the dressing room.

It was in the 1967-68 season that Jarman became a regular in the side. On that winter Ashes tour of England, he was even named captain for the Headingley Test after Bill Lawry missed out due to injury. Incidentally, Tom Graveney too filled in as skipper for the regular England captain Colin Cowdrey.

Jarman played his 19th and last Test match at his home ground in Adelaide against West Indies before calling time on his international career, coinciding with the emergence of the prodigious Rod Marsh. He would then go on to join the ICC as a match referee and oversaw 25 Tests and 28 ODIs until 2001. Jarman took the call to abandon the 1998 Jamaica Test between England and West Indies due to a dangerous pitch.

He also officiated in the Centurion Test between South Africa and England that saw two declarations at 0 for 0 with Hansie Cronje later confirming that he'd been influenced by bookies to get a result from a rain-affected game. Jarman, however, said he had not been aware of any devious undertones to that game.
