Wisden Obituary
Pfuhl, Gavin Pattison, died in Cape Town on April 1, 2002, aged 54, from a viral complication after a heart transplant. The day before the operation, he had been doing cricket commentary for television. Gavin Pfuhl kept wicket for Western Province when they won the Currie Cup in 1970, 1975 and 1978, and in 95 first-class games between 1967-68 and 1979-80 took 280 catches and made 34 stumpings. He also scored 2,331 runs at 21.58. "He was an excellent keeper in the days when Province had Denys Hobson bowling leg-spin," recalled Ali Bacher, who played for Transvaal against him. Twice, against Rhodesia in 1970-71 and Eastern Province in his final season, Pfuhl held six catches in an innings. He followed up the first instance - in a non-Currie Cup game at Salisbury - by hitting his only century, 117, despite being hit on the head by a Mike Procter bouncer.
