One of the great entertainers of the sport, and an underrated player in ODIs where he was a complete package in all three disciplines. If only he'd been born 10 years later, T20 cricket was invented for him.

Very sad loss. RIP Roy

Jim Parks...Oldest surviving England Test player departed at 90. Was a fine wicketkeeper/batsman back in the 60s , though he did not claim to be in the class of Evans with the gloves. Remember him playing very well with the bat on the 1965/66 Ashes tour. Came from a real cricketing family with a father who played one Test opening with Hutton pre-war and a son who went on to represent Hampshire. Jim (and Jim Snr) were Sussex stalwarts , though he actually finished his career at Somerset. Reckon he would have done well in the white ball game had it been around in those days...
RIP.

I think he and Evans were the Jones v Read of their time.

RIP.


Part of a very elite group of cricketers who can claim a test hundred with the bat, a wicket with the ball, and a stumping with the gloves....

The uncle (Harry) is very far up on the list of most games for Sussex too.... somewhere near 500.

Jean-Louis Trintignant, 91. Lauded French actor for nearly 70 years and a big favourite for me in the phenomenal Three Colours Red. Featured in many classics of European cinema, including some of my best loved films like The Big Silence, Z, A Man and a Woman and The Conformist. Many more.
