John James Warr was born on July 16, 1927, and died on May 9, 2016.

He was an English cricketer.

He played in two Test matches for England.

His Test bowling average remains the worst of any retired English player, but Warr turned it into comic relief in his highly humorous after dinner speeches

However, he did take 100 first-class wickets twice – in 1956 and 1959, and played a total of 15 matches for the Gentlemen of England.

After retirement, he became a leading figure at the Jockey Club and was President of the MCC in 1987–88.

John Warr passed away at 88 yrs old.
