Full Career statistics

The former England under 19s all-rounder has been a regular and consistent performer for Yorkshire’s Academy and second teams since debuting in 2013 and 2016 respectively.

He is one of a number of players from York to break through to the county’s senior set-up alongside the likes of Jonny Bairstow, Matthew Fisher and Jack Leaning.

Yorkshire’s second-team coach and Academy director Ian Dews has described him as “a bowler who bats”.

Barnes debuted for the White Rose as an under 13 in 2011 and has also played under 14s, 15s and 17s cricket.

In 2015, playing for the under 17s in a two-day game against Derbyshire at Repton School, he hit a run-a-ball 177 from the middle order in a high-scoring draw.

He was also recognised by the ECB in their player development teams at under 15s and 17s levels and helped the Yorkshire Academy win the league and cup double in 2014.

Barnes is yet to make his first-team debut for the White Rose, although has played two Tests and two ODIs for England under 19s – against Sri Lanka on home soil in 2016.

He took nine wickets and played in the same side as Ollie Pope and Dom Bess, both of whom have gone on to play senior Test Match cricket.

In 48 second XI appearances to date across all forms, Barnes has taken 51 wickets and scored three half-centuries.

His first three appearances for the seconds in 2016 yielded scores of 58, 44 not out and 49 alongside five wickets combined.
