Dennis Leslie Amiss MBE (born 7 April 1943, Harborne, Birmingham, Warwickshire) was an English cricketer and cricket administrator.
Amiss suffered a serious back injury whilst playing soccer in his teenage years, which entailed him starting each day of his sporting life undergoing stretching routines to loosen up.
He played cricket for both Warwickshire County Cricket Club and England. A right-handed batsman, Amiss was a brilliant stroke maker particularly through extra cover and midwicket - his two favourite areas to score runs. He was an accomplished batsman in all forms of the game. He averaged 42.86 in first-class, 35.06 in List-A, 46.30 in Tests and 47.72 in One Day Internationals. In first-class cricket he scored 102 centuries, and his England record amassed over 50 Tests ranks him with the best England has produced.
After retiring as a player in 1987, he served Warwickshire as Chairman of the Cricket Committee, and he followed David Heath as Chief Executive from 1994 until 2005. In 1992 he was selected as an England selector.He was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Birmingham in the summer of 2007.
