Wisden Obituary
Parker, Mark Moreton, died on October 12, 2002 as a result of injuries received in the terrorist bomb blast in Bali. He had recently celebrated his 27th birthday and was holidaying there prior to the New Zealand season after a successful summer with the Hampshire club St Cross Symondians. He was the son of Murray Parker and nephew of John, both New Zealand Test cricketers. Mark captained New Zealand at Under-20 level and in 1996-97 played three Shell Trophy matches for Otago, making 50 runs at 8.33 with a top score of 14. Gavin Larsen, the New Zealand one-day specialist who knew Parker from Wellington club cricket, described him as "mega-talented... he was a great timer of the ball and should have played more first-class cricket".
