Former England all-rounder Peter Walker passes away

The ECB is saddened to hear of the passing of former England and Glamorgan all-rounder Peter Walker, who has died aged 84.

Walker played three Tests for England, all against South Africa in 1960, and spent his entire first-class career at Glamorgan, scoring over 17,000 runs and taking 834 wickets.

Having moved into the media at the end of his playing career, Walker returned to the game as chief executive of the Cricket Board of Wales in 1996 and later became president of Glamorgan CCC between 2009 and 2010. The following year he was awarded an MBE for services to cricket.

Our thoughts are with Peter’s family and friends at this time.
