Rob Bailey (born Robert John Bailey, 28 October 1963, Biddulph, Staffordshire) is a former English cricketer who played in 4 Tests and 4 ODIs from 1985 to 1990. A courageous middle order batsman with a short backlift, Bailey hit the ball extremely hard, with shots all around the ground. Accompanied by this was his ability in the field, and as a part-time off spinner. He took the now prize wicket of Kevin Pietersen for nought, in a County Championship game against Nottinghamshire, at Derby in 2001. He made his first-class debut for Northamptonshire in 1982 before being selected to represent England - his debut match against the formidable West Indies attack of 1988, leading to his selection for the winter tour to India, a trip that was cancelled due to political reasons - he and several members of the England squad had sporting links to South Africa. He had specifically passed up the opportunity to participate in the England 1989 Rebel Tour to South Africa. His form at the beginning of the 1989 season can only be considered as poor, returning in time for his selection to the 1989–90 West Indies tour. He was given his first game of the series in the third Test where he bagged a pair.
