Profile

Worcestershire fast-medium bowler Parvaz Mirza, 24, died at his Birmingham home early on September 24, 1995, from a suspected heart attack, only a week after playing for his county in their final Sunday League match of the season. "We are devastated", said Worcestershire secretary Mike Vockins. "You don't really think of these things happening to a young man, especially a professional sportsman." A return of 7 for 58 in a 2nd XI match against Somerset II in 1993 earned Mirza a place on the staff at New Road, and he made his first-class debut in 1994, taking 4 for 29 against Oxford University at Worcester.
