International career

Paul Jan Bakker (Cricketer) playing cricket

An accurate seam bowler, Bakker made his ICC Trophy debut in 1986, taking 5/18 against Papua New Guinea. He played all five One Day Internationals for The Netherlands during the 1996 Cricket World Cup, including his countries first official ODI against New Zealand at the advanced age of 38. Quirkily, his solitary ODI run was an umpiring error against UAE at Lahore. The final delivery of the Dutch innings yielded a scampered bye to keeper Abbasi but without an umpire signal - with contact he would have been caught behind! After the 1996 World Cup Bakker retired from cricket.

Career in England

Between 1986 and 1992 Bakker played for Hampshire in the English County Championship (being their leading wicket taker in 1989).
