Salim Parvez - Statistician, Author, Historian & Archivist
Born in Taplow, Berkshire in 1965, both of Salim’s education and club cricket was in Pakistan, where he spent 19 years before returning to UK in 1986.
As a freelance cricket writer, Salim kicked off with England-West Indies 1995 pocket-size book and his first taste of publication on Pakistan cricket, with Babes of Cricket to World Champion in 1996, written in collaboration with Shuja-ud-din, Test all-rounder. The duo upgraded their work with The Chequered History of Pakistan Cricket, launched at Bagh-e-Jinnah, Lahore in 2003. Salim’s major contribution perhaps thus far is the profile-based, K.H.Baloch’s Encyclopaedia of Pakistan Cricket, launched in Karachi in 2005. Since then, the same team have broken new grounds with K.H.Baloch’s Bibliography of Pakistan Cricket, coinciding with Pakistan team’s tour of England in 2010. He was also co-writer of A Straight Bat – a biography of Pakistan Test opener, Alim-ud-din in 2015. The 2nd edition of Encyclopaedia of Pakistan Cricket is taking its shape with an aim to be launched in the near future.
