Parvez Mir, who played in three One-Day Internationals for Pakistan, made one appearance for Glamorgan, against the Indian tourists at Swansea in 1979.
The Pakistani had previously played for Derbyshire in 1975, and he owed his selection in the Glamorgan side to a brief successful trial with the county`s 2nd XI during which he scored a double hundred. Parvez had made his first-class debut for Rawalpindi during 1970/71 before subsequently playing in domestic cricket in Pakistan for Lahore, Punjab, Universities and Habib Bank.
Parvez also played in League cricket in the UK , as well as in Minor County cricket for Norfolk besides appearances for the MCC. He subsequently moved to the USA and, as Director of the North American Cricket Authority, he arranged exhibition matches involving teams from England and the West Indies.
He has subsequently become a journalist and broadcaster in Pakistan, whilst in 2007 he acted as Media Manager for the Pakistan team at the 2007 World Cup.
