Thomas Arthur Raynes (18 July 1835 – 6 March 1914) was an English cricketer. Raynes was a right-handed batsman. He was born at Ripe, Sussex.
Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the centre of which is a 20-metre (22-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. The batting side scores runs by striking the ball bowled at the wicket with the bat, while the bowling and fielding side tries to prevent this and dismiss each player. Means of dismissal include being bowled, when the ball hits the stumps and dislodges the bails, and by the fielding side catching the ball after it is hit by the bat, but before it hits the ground. When ten players have been dismissed, the innings ends and the teams swap roles. The game is adjudicated by two umpires, aided by a third umpire and match referee in international matches. They communicate with two off-field scorers who record the match's statistical information.
Sussex, from the Old English Sūþsēaxe, is a historic county in South East England corresponding roughly in area to the ancient Kingdom of Sussex. It is bounded to the west by Hampshire, north by Surrey, northeast by Kent, south by the English Channel, and divided for many purposes into the ceremonial counties of West Sussex and East Sussex. Brighton and Hove, though part of East Sussex, was made a unitary authority in 1997, and as such, is administered independently of the rest of East Sussex. Brighton and Hove was granted City status in 2000. Until then, Chichester was Sussex's only city.
Raynes made his first-class debut for Sussex against an All-England Eleven in 1854 at The Dripping Pan, Lewes.He next appeared in first-class cricket in 1856, playing for the Gentlemen of Surrey and Sussex against the Gentlemen of England at Lord's, while in 1859 he played for Gentlemen of the South against the Gentlemen of the North at The Oval. His second first-class appearance for Sussex came in 1861 against the Marylebone Cricket Club. He made five further first-class appearances for the county, the last of which came against Middlesex in 1864 at the Royal Brunswick Ground, Hove. He also made a single first-class appearance for the Surrey Club in 1862 against Middlesex. In his total of seven first-class matches for Sussex, Raynes scored 69 runs at an average of 6.27, with a high score of 15. In total, he scored 207 runs in his ten first-class matches, at an average of 12.17 and with a high score of 39.
First-class cricket is an official classification of the highest-standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket. A first-class match is of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each although, in practice, a team might play only one innings or none at all.
Sussex County Cricket Club is the oldest of eighteen first-class county clubs within the domestic cricket structure of England and Wales. It represents the historic county of Sussex. Its limited overs team is called the Sussex Sharks. The club was founded in 1839 as a successor to the various Sussex county cricket teams, including the old Brighton Cricket Club, which had been representative of the county of Sussex as a whole since the 1720s. The club has always held first-class status. Sussex have competed in the County Championship since the official start of the competition in 1890 and have played in every top-level domestic cricket competition in England.
