<full name of cricketer> (born <day> <month> <year> in [[<birthplace>]], died <day> <month> <year> in [[<deathplace>]]) was a [[England|English]] [[cricket]]er who played for [[<name of county> County Cricket Club|<name of county>]]. A <type of player>, he made his [[first-class cricket|first-class]] debut for <name of county> in 19?? and played xx matches for the club; he also played xy <nowiki>[[List A cricket|List A cricket]].

<Surname of cricketer> made his highest score of <top score> against [[<name of county> County Cricket Club|<name of county>]]</nowiki> in 19??. <There is room for expansion here, perhaps if he made several centuries, shared in notable partnership. Have a look through some scorecards - you can work out his usually batting position (mention if an opener or number 3 for example). With Trevor Anning I found a partnership with Peter Roebuck, so mentioned it to link to other notable players.>

His best bowling performance of x&ndash;yz was against [[<name of county> County Cricket Club|<name of county>]] in 19??.<likewise expand here - other notable innings?>

<If you can see from the scorecards that they played an important part of the match, lots of wickets, runs at a difficult time, mention it and try to describe the situation. All this I surmised from the one scorecard: 2Anning also played in the 2005 competition, against a very strong Essex side, containing no fewer than 7 full internationals. Anning finished with highly-respectable bowling figures of 6–0–20–0 as Essex posted a target of 264 from 50 overs. Devon were 23 for 6 before Neil Hancock and Sandy Allen added 24 before Allen was caught behind by James Foster. Anning then successfully defended his wicket for 33 balls, scoring just 5 runs in half an hour, before being caught by Ravi Bopara off the spin bowling of Zimbabwean international Grant Flower. He was the last man out as Devon lost by 180 runs.">

<Other things to mention: any records, any competition wins, exceptional averages? Was their only wicket against a Test match batsman? Did they score a century against Joel Garner or Michael Holding? When did they retire? What were their first-class averages? Any famous cricketing family>
