Durban - The KZN Cricket Union is mourning the passing of SA Abed after hearing about his death, it has said in a statement on Wednesday.
Popularly known as Doc, Abed passed away late July in Johannesburg after a short illness.
A left-arm, fast-medium opening bowler of unerring accuracy, he represented the Natal Cricket Board team in two Dadabhay tournaments in the early sixties and captained the Province in 1964/1965.
A shrewd captain, he led the Crescent Cricket Club to several Championship victories in the sixties and seventies.
The team was considered among the foremost cricket clubs under the auspices of the NCB at the time.
KZNCU send its condolences to family and friends.
