Richard Trevor Barber (3 June 1925 – 7 August 2015) was a New Zealand cricketer who played in one Test in 1956, against the West Indies in Wellington. He was born in Otaki, Wellington.

Cricket career

A middle-order batsman, Barber played for Wellington from 1945-46 to 1958-59, and for Central Districts in 1959-60. He scored his only century, 117, against Otago in Wellington in 1953-54, which was also one of the two Plunket Shield matches in which he kept wicket. He captained Wellington in 1950-51 and 1951-52, and from 1955-56 to 1957-58, and Central Districts in 1959-60. Wellington won the Shield under his captaincy in 1956-57.

Dick Brittenden wrote that Barber "could field anywhere with distinction", especially slips and gully, and that "his cover drive, produced from the best blend of balance and timing, was for the connoisseur".

On the death of Sammy Guillen on 1 March 2013, Barber became the oldest surviving New Zealand Test cricketer. Following his death in August 2015, John Reid became the oldest surviving New Zealand Test cricketer.
