Dominic Peter Sibley (born 5 September 1995) is an English cricketer who plays for Warwickshire. He made his international debut for the England cricket team in November 2019.

Career

He is a right-handed batsman who bowls right-arm off break. He made his List A debut for Surrey against Essex on 2 August 2013, though he had to retire due to injury.

In just his third first-class cricket match, while still a student at Whitgift School, he scored a double century against Yorkshire aged 18 years and 21 days. In doing so he became the youngest double-centurion in the history of the County Championship, the second-youngest Englishman to score a first-class double hundred and the thirteenth youngest double-centurion of any nationality. On the final day of the four-day match, Sibley was out (bowled by Ryan Sidebottom) for 242.

In August 2017, Sibley turned down an offer of a new three-year contract with Surrey to join Warwickshire ahead of the 2018 season. On 3 August 2017, Sibley moved on loan to Warwickshire for the remainder of the 2017 season with Rikki Clarke moving in the other direction.

In September 2019, he was named in England's Test squad for their series against New Zealand. He made his Test debut for England, against New Zealand, on 21 November 2019. Early in his Test career it was recognised that Sibley, nicknamed “the Fridge”, had emerged from county cricket not fit enough for the rigours of the five day game, which he was addressing. On 6 January 2020, Sibley scored his first century in Test cricket, in the second match against South Africa. This was the first hundred by an England opener at Newlands since Jack Hobbs in 1910.
