Sussex, Somerset and England wicketkeeper-batsman Jim Parks, 90. RIP.
A tribute for him at the County Ground this evening before the match against Sussex. The only two counties he played for.

I remember him more for his batting than keeping and he started out as a specialist batsman. Became a keeper almost by accident.

He was a fine attacking batsman and good to watch.

RIP

Just to think that if it wasnt for some kind of need to take risks for the 'thrill'? of speed, their families would not now be devastated. What a waste of life.
